Project Profiles


Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve is a 650 acre wildlife preserve located within the city limits of Hillsboro, Oregon. The Preserve is a tranquil sanctuary for both people and animals. The Quiet open waters, rolling meadows and upland ash and fir woods are homes to thousands of ducks and geese, deer, otters, beavers, herons and eagles.

This pristine location provides an excellent example for the proper use of treated wood in aquatic environments. Permapost K-520 (Copper Naphthenate) and K-8 (Copper-8-Quinolinolate) treated wood was used in the construction of boardwalks and stairways, bridges, benches, and wildlife viewing sites. Thousands of school children, bird watchers, and families visit Jackson Bottom each year.
