May Wetland Wander at Stewart Pond

Tuesday, May 9th
Stewart Pond

Many people have heard the saying, April showers bring May flowers--well, May has arrived and the wildflowers are starting to blossom! This month's walk, on wetland botany, will be led by City of Eugene Wetland Ecologist, Diane Steeck. She will be walking us through the spring wildflowers where we might see some Oregon saxifrage, common camas, and water-plantain buttercup. 
Participants should bring water and dress for the weather. WREN will provide binoculars.

Directions: From West 11th Ave, turn north onto Bertelsen Road. Turn right onto Stewart Road, follow until end and park in gravel parking lot.

WREN Wanders are casual walks through West Eugene Wetlands sites the second Tuesday of every month. These exciting opportunities are FREE to the public and provide observation, education and inspiration in our surrounding natural spaces.
