Metro debuts REIN (Regional Environmental Information Network)
Can you identify the woodpecker species at right? If so you are a prime person for pointing out sightings of more select local animals to Metro. This feature is just one of many on a new site launched by our regional government. REIN (Regional Environmental Information Network) is being billed as a “regional clearinghouse for restoration, monitoring, education and conservation projects and as an information resource for government partners, nonprofits, community groups and citizens working to monitor or improve the natural environment”. This site provides local Portlanders with resources to get current information on conservation projects such as how and where to volunteer.
