Wetland Wander

Wetland Wander at Willow Creek

Willow Creek Natural Area, managed by the Nature Conservancy, spans over 500 acres of native wet and upland prairie. The land provides essential habitat for a number of threatened and endangered species, particularly the Fender's blue butterfly.  Though it's too late in the season to see butterflies, there is still plenty of wild beauty to behold! Join mammal expert David Walp as we wander our way through Willow Creek and take in the turning of the seasons.

Directions: In West Eugene. Park and meet in the turnouts on W. 18th Ave, west of Bertelsen

WREN Wanders are casual walks through various West Eugene Wetlands sites each second Tuesday of every month. These exciting opportunities are FREE to the public and provide observation, education and inspiration in our surrounding natural spaces. WREN staff and volunteers will guide this walk. WREN will provide binoculars.
