Vanport flood plain

Smith and Bybee Lakes were once adjacent to Vanport, Oregon's second largest city until the devasting flood of 1948. In honor of the 71st anniversary of the flood, we will learn about the culture and history of Vanport while exploring and learning about Metro's largest natural area, Smith and Bybee.

Pets policy: To protect plants, wildlife and people, Metro does not allow pets at most regional parks and natural areas. Pets can damage sensitive habitat and threaten wildlife the region has worked to protect. In natural areas where dogs are not allowed, people see more wildlife and get closer to it. Seeing-eye dogs or other service animals are allowed. Please bring cleanup materials.
