“3,000-acre complex of wetlands”
The West Eugene Wetlands is a nearly 3,000-acre complex of wetlands and associated uplands located west of downtown. Based upon the objectives of the West Eugene Wetlands Plan, an ambitious effort to conserve and restore the wetlands began in the early 1990s. The Rivers to Ridges Partnership(formerly known as the West Eugene Wetland Partnership), formed among multiple agencies and non-profit organizations to work together to protect and restore the wetlands, and provide outreach and education opportunities. Today, the wetlands are enjoyed by bikers and pedestrians, nature enthusiasts, families, and school groups, and have been recognized in Oregon and nationally for their high-quality restorations.
Covering over 3,000 acres (1,214 ha), the West Eugene Wetlands features several miles of trails, wildlife overlooks, and interpretive signage, allowing visitors to experience one of the best remaining examples of Willamette Valley native wet prairie.
