The Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council welcomes Travis Williams, Willamette Riverkeeper Executive Director, for this month's Science Pub! The Willamette River Water Trail is one of only 20 National Water Trails in the United States. It spans over 200 miles of the Willamette River and key tributaries, including the Coast Fork Willamette River, creating multiple opportunities for people to connect with the river landscape. This accessibility enables people to encounter a diversity of wildlife, explore backwaters, enjoy scenic campsites and experience relative peace and quiet within close proximity to many of Oregon’s largest population centers. This presentation will provide insight on how to access and enjoy the Willamette River Water Trail. Mr. Williams will explain the interesting past and little-known aspects of the Willamette River Greenway Program, the program which provides much of the foundation of the Willamette River Water Trail. Just in time to plan your quick summer getaway or multi-day trip, come learn about the wealth of opportunity provided by the Willamette River Water Trail & Greenway Program! In 2001, Mr. Williams formed the first Paddle Oregon trip and in 2005 he led the effort to establish the Willamette Water Trail. He is the author of the Willamette River Field Guide as well as the two Water Trail Guides for the Willamette. He holds a B.A. in International Studies from Portland State University and an M.S. in Environmental Studies from Johns Hopkins University.
