Mission


To practice and promote land stewardship through education, partnerships, and scientific research.

WREN (Willamette Resources & Educational Network) is a nonprofit organization who provides environmental education to all ages in the Eugene/Springfield area. We partner with other local organizations to offer diverse education programs including West Eugene Wetlands school field trips, after-school programs, in-classroom lessons, nature craft video tutorials, and live virtual programming.

Located in the West Eugene Wetlands, home to hundreds of plants and animals and over 3,000 acres of wetlands and uplands, our education programs engage with a variety of schools and is designed to complement existing school curricula by incorporating State Standards.

We pride ourselves in giving community members and students opportunities to teach, research, create, dream, explore, speak out, and make a difference.
