Willamette Confluence Preserve Tours
Saturday October 21, 10am-1pm ~ Get More Info & Register Here
Join The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and Friends of Buford Park on a walking tour of the Willamette Confluence. This site 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 Nature Conservancy is working with partners to reconnect the river to its historic floodplain across 20 ponds in this former gravel mining site. During this 3-4 mile mostly flat walking tour, volunteer docents will lead you around the preserve highlighting the conservation efforts and natural wonders.
Registration for these tours is through The Nature Conservancy’s registration site. Once registered you will be sent a confirmation email with directions and a contact for TNC for additional information.
Our Tour Program is Growing!
The Tour Program is planned 3-9 months in advance. If you have ideas for tours you’d like to attend at Buford Park, or if you have an idea for a tour you’d like to lead, let us know! We are also recruiting volunteers to help with tours and events. Contact the Friends’ Outreach Coordinator with suggestions.
