"Estuaries are often overlooked and undervalued, but they are a key tool in our work to solve the climate crisis," U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici stated in a press release. "As co-chair of the Congressional Estuary Caucus, I was pleased to help lead the effort to support and safeguard our National Estuary Programs with the Protect and Restore America's Estuaries Act, and I am committed to securing additional resources to protect our precious coastal ecosystems. I applaud the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership for leading outstanding resiliency efforts in the Pacific Northwest to restore and protect habitat, improve water quality, restore flood plains, and address marine debris."
