Willamette Confluence Long Walking Tour

Oregon

Explore the Willamette Confluence

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. TNC is working with partners to reconnect the river to its historic floodplain across 20 ponds in this former gravel mining site. 

During this 6 mile walking tour, volunteer docents will lead you around the preserve, highlighting the conservation efforts, human history, and natural features. This is the longest of this year’s walking tours and will include some short steep uphill and downhill sections, walking on uneven ground, and crossing a slow flowing creek that may be up to a foot deep. Participants must be physically fit. 

Registration is required.

If you would like to register for 5 or more participants, please contact us directly at orvolunteers@tnc.org.
