Native Plant Tour of the Coyote Spencer Wetlands

Join the McKenzie River Trust and the Emerald Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon (NPSO) for a tour of the 190-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.

Founded in 1979, the Emerald Chapter of NPSO has a long history of active involvement in the study, education and conservation of our region's native flora. This exciting tour will be led by chapter President Dave Predeek and MRT Land Protection Manager Ryan Ruggiero.
