Fort Vancouver was the administrative headquarters and main supply depot for the Hudson's Bay Company fur trading operations. Under the leadership of John McLoughlin, the fort became the center of political, cultural, and commercial activities in the Pacific Northwest. Fort Vancouver was initially established as a National Monument in 1948. In 1961, the boundaries of Fort Vancouver were enlarged and it was re-designating as a National Historic Site.

The site currently encompasses ~170 acres in a variety of conditions. The natural environment was heavily impacted over time by the Hudson's Bay Company and by US Army development, which moved into the area in 1849. As a result, almost none of the site's historic natural environment remains. Today the site is comprised of: 62.9 acres of maintained historic landscapes with ornamental plantings and orchards, 83.3 acres of developed land (airport and railroads), and 23.8 acres of disturbed uplands and riparian areas.

Park Species List

Select a Species Category (optional):

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
