    Story: Scappoose would be mostly wetlands if it was not for the dike along Multnoma Channel. Durning the rainy season (Oct-July) many fields turn into ponds; a boon to migrating waterbirds.

    Story: It’s wintertime along the channel. The nature-made channel runs parallel to the Columbia River from Portland to St. Helens, Oregon. The vantage point is just east of Scappoose, along Dike Road; looking south from Lat. 45.7, Long. -122.8.

    Story: Finding a vantage point to paint this Scappoose icon isn’t easy. It is almost completely surrounded by large, obnoxious billboards.
