The Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah will host a tour, led by Don Holtgrieve, of the 63-acre floodplain near the confluence of the Coast Fork and Middle Fork of the Willamette River for participants to learn the ecological importance of native plants and wildlife. See the old gravel ponds which have been restored as habitats for river otter, western pond turtles, waterfowl and willow wetlands where migratory songbirds flock. Turtle Flats has extreme ecological significance because it connects Glassbar Island, owned by Oregon State Parks to the Willamette Confluence Preserve, owned by The Nature Conservancy. Directions to the tour will be sent upon registration.
