The 1,305-acre Willamette Confluence Preserve (located in Lane County, Oregon) is owned by The
Nature Conservancy (TNC) but was once owned by the family owned and operated Wildish Sand
and Gravel, which began in 1935. By early 2018, three phases of construction to restore floodplain
habitats on the Willamette Confluence Preserve have been completed, with restoration plantings
underway on the third phase.

33 Q&A WITH CONGRESS

House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit Chairman Sam Graves, R-Mo., is focused on
infrastructure funding. Rep. Graves sat down with Stone, Sand & Gravel REVIEW to talk about the
focus that Congress and the administration have on infrastructure.

37 MORE CROPS, LOWER COSTS -
AGRICULTURAL LIME MAY BE THE KEY

Agricultural lime or, Aglime, is a soil conditioner most
commonly produced from finely crushed limestone.
For farmers, it means lower crop production costs, but
for quarries with the proper chemistry for Aglime
production, it equals another product to sell.
