West Hayden Island is 823 acres of wild and undeveloped land located between the states of Oregon and Washington on the Columbia River. It sits in the middle of a migratory water-fowl fly-way and it is a riparian green space for bald eagles, osprey, reptiles, songbirds and animals. The east side of the island is home to 2,200 residents including the largest manufactured home community in Oregon consisting of families, seniors and disabled. The Port of Portland owns the west side and is planning to turn 300 acres into a bulk marine terminal if the city of Portland annexes the area. The residents and the wildlife would suffer greatly from the pollution and disruption generated by development of West Hayden Island.
