June Wetland Wander
Eight of us wandered around the Golden Ponds area, viewing the rehabilitation process going on. The stream sides have been made more gentle and will soon support riparian vegetation. New pine trees have been planted near the picnic table. We were surprised to see some recent vandalism but were in hopes that, as more people make use of the area for birding, fishing, running and just visiting, vandalism will decrease. Emily Steel from the City of Eugene and Jules Abbott from WREN were group leaders. We saw a variety of birds and were introduced to many native and non-native plants in the area.
