Cowlitz County’s Land reclamation Project is a farm that is organized to reclaim a 1200-acre volcanic ash cell. The Reclamation Project will use on-site composting and integration of biosolids, wood waste, etc. The farm will establish a development of phytoremedial-hybrid tree crop or plantation. A buffer zone between the farm and river is being established to encourage indigenous vegetation growth and enhance and protect wildlife and fish habitat. This will also encourage and provide a forum for local education research.
