Wetland Wanders

Wetland Wanders are guided walks through the West Eugene Wetlands or other local natural areas. Walks are free and open to the public. On the second Tuesday and following Saturday June through August from 9am to 11am, we explore a different theme, conservation project, and site in the Eugene/Springfield area. Please bring water, binoculars, closed-toed shoes, and dress for the weather.
