Explore the Willamette Confluence Preserve
The Willamette Confluence features extensive habitats that are endangered in the Willamette Valley and includes six miles of river corridor, floodplain forest, wetlands, upland oak woodlands and native prairie. The Conservancy is working with partners to reconnect the river to its historic floodplain across 20 ponds in this former gravel mining site. During this 4 mile mostly flat walking tour, volunteer docents will lead you around the Middle part of the preserve, highlighting the conservation efforts, human history, and natural wonders of areas in which restoration work began in 2017. Note that other tours will focus on the Western and Eastern parts of the preserve. Register here.
