Beginning with local Native American tribes who traded valuable items, such as salmon, along the bustling networks of the Columbia River, the growth and prosperity of Clatsop County has long been connected to the area’s wealth of natural resources. Nineteenth-century settlers were similarly drawn to the region for its environmental offerings. Industries such as fishing and timber boomed in the late 1800s, while others found success tending farms. Clatsop County’s economy continues to be tied to its natural environment as picturesque views and outdoor recreation draws tourists to the area. The Bounty of Clatsop County explores this dynamic relationship between people and the natural world.
