Event Description: Come join WREN as part of the 2022 Willamette River Festival to learn why the wetlands are so important! We’ll be hosting several fun family activities in the West Eugene Wetlands. Come by bike, scooter, roller blades, or your own two feet! WREN will lead families through a carnival-style activity station and Lane Arts Council artists will lead activities that explore the wetlands through art.

For more detailed information about the Lane Arts Council activity stations, see below:

Kim Frank will engage families in a fun place-based activity that highlights human-powered transportation through the wetlands. Participants will use natural wetland materials to decorate their bikes, scooters, and shoes as well as collaborate on a natural art sculpture.

Heather Greene will lead families in an exploration of nature journaling. Participants will use observational drawing, color pencil, and watercolor techniques as they respond to the wetlands around them.
