Sauvie Island is a large island (nearly the size of Manhattan) nestled in the middle of the Columbia River, less than 12 miles from downtown Portland, Oregon. It’s a magical place set against a spectacular back-drop of Cascadian snow-capped, volcanic peaks and the Tualatin Mountains. It's a rural and wild place where one goes to “slow down.” The northern half of the island is a 12,000-acre wildlife area brimming with navigable, tidally-influenced lakes and streams. It’s popular for hunting, fishing, kayaking, birding, beach-going, and hiking. About 275 bird species (including sandhill cranes, tundra swans, great blue heron, and bald eagle) are known to occur on the island, with 2 to 3 million ducks and geese making the island their winter home. The southern half of the island is mostly farmland. It’s loved for its pumpkin patches, corn mazes, u-pick fruit fields, nurseries, and flat, 12-mile bicycle loop route.
