–Loving Our Wetlands–
Maya Goklany, Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator
Eugene is home to over 3,000 acres of wetlands which are one of our community’s most valuable natural resources, and provide numerous recreational and educational opportunities. Come out and learn about the water quality and wildlife values of Eugene’s wetlands and how you can enjoy them up close and personal.
–Monarch Butterflies: Lane County Migration–

Monarch butterflies are rare today in the Willamette Valley whereas formerly they were more abundant.
Once abundant throughout the Willamette Valley, these valuable pollinators are now in steep decline! Come learn about the natural history of monarch butter migration in our area and ways you can help reverse and reduce their population declines.

Nicole Smedegaard, Education Director.
