Foster Floodplain, a new natural area in Portland

Portland has a new natural area:

The City of Portland completed work on the Foster Floodplain Natural Area in 2012. The restored portion of Johnson Creek and its reclaimed floodplain are located south of SE Foster Road in Lents. Restoration of the 63-acre site transformed a flood-prone neighborhood into a beautiful natural area.

You can read more about this new natural area here and here.

Toward the end of February, when running errands out on Powell Blvd., Afton and I pulled over and went for a little walk (photos):
