Join us on a walk at the Little Willamette conservation area as we search for Western pond and Western painted turtles. Both turtles are listed as “critical” on Oregon’s sensitive species list. As we explore various habitats near the Willamette River, Greenbelt’s Restoration Manager, Matt Blakeley-Smith, will talk about turtles and Greenbelt’s habitat restoration efforts to protect these reptiles and other wildlife.
Little Willamette is a beautiful 200-acre conservation area that is privately owned. Together with the landowner and funders, Greenbelt Land
Trust actively stewards this land in Albany. This walk is kid- and family-friendly, and is a rare opportunity to walk a conservation area that most folks don’t get to see!
