Community Information

When Fiona and I moved our family from close-in SW Portland to Sauvie Island, it was a big change.....but one of the best decisions we've made. Granted, we did have to become a bit more organized since we couldn't just "run" down to the store to pick up that forgotten item, but it's been worth it.

My favorite things about the Island:

  • When you cross the bridge coming home from work, you really begin to relax
  • The view of the local mountains in the early morning
  • The Community: People look out for each other
  • Sauvie Island Academy (K-8)
  • The beaches
  • Picking up fresh produce on the way home at one of the local farmers markets.
  • Boating on the channel
  • Access to great bike riding
  • The deer in the backyard
  • Watching an eagle grab a fish in the channel

Here are some great links to websites with information about Sauvie Island.   Please check back to this page as I'm often updating it.

sauvieisland.org   By far the most comprehensive website on the Island.   A great resource for local residents and visitors.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sauvie_Island Good basic information

http://www.firstconnect.it/map-applications.html   Great resource for information on flood plains.

Sauvie Island Coffee  I start out every morning with a cup....or two.
