Community Programs


Family Exploration Days

On the second Saturday of summer months, WREN offers free choose-your-own adventures in the West Eugene Wetlands. Embark on a nature-inspired scavenger hunt, or explore the trails with binoculars, field guides, bug nets, hand magnifiers, and bug boxes. Bring your curiosity and sense of adventure! Exploration days are from 10 am to 2 pm and WREN staff/volunteers will be on hand to answer your questions. 

Wetland Wanders

Wetland Wanders are casual walks through the West Eugene Wetlands on the second Tuesday of each month. Each month we choose a different wetland site and bring in a local expert. Walks are free and open to the public. Please bring water, binoculars, closed-toed shoes, and dress for the weather. 

Community Events 

WREN participates in a variety of community events throughout the year. Swing by our table at events like Sunday Streets, Public Works Day, and the Mushroom Festival (among others) to learn about the West Eugene Wetlands and participate in interactive crafts. We also host public events at our project office, 751 S. Danebo Ave, in collaboration with the Bureau of Land Management.
