Come and explore Green Island, an incredible natural area just minutes from where you live, work, and play. You’ll join with neighbors, families, and friends to find birdsong and music, fresh water and cold beverages, naturalist guides and spots to gather in the shade of trees. It’s all here, where the Willamette and McKenzie Rivers come together.
Green Island is the McKenzie River Trust‘s flagship site, the place we’ve poured our hearts into for the past 13 years thanks to our members’ generous support. This place has incredible stories to tell. Walk with your friends and spend the day making memories outdoors on Green Island.
Online pre-registration is now closed, but please visit us at the entry to register on event day. When you register, you will be entered to win a $100 gift card from REI!

We like dogs as much as you, but there are no dogs allowed on Green Island. Please leave your furry friends at home so they don’t have to wait in the car.
