Join the McKenzie River Trust and the Emerald Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon (NPSO) for a tour of the 161-acre Coyote Spencer Wetlands.
The extensive, intact wetland habitats of the Coyote Spencer Wetlands are home to an impressive variety of native plants. We'll explore life along the edges of emergent and forested wetlands. As time allows, we'll visit populations of several rare and sensitive plants present on this site. Located just 5 miles southwest of Highway 126, upstream of Fern Ridge Reservoir, this protected property is a conservation jewel in Eugene's backyard.
