Calling all local history buffs! Come and learn more about the fascinating history of Bald Hill Farm, from Kalapuya through western settler migration. We’ll delve into the world of the extensive Mulkey family whose name graces the property’s creek and ridgeline, and trace back local tales through oral and written documents. Space is limited to 30 for this free event.
This will be a slow, easy walk with many stops and considerable standing.
This mix of Oregon White Oak woodland, meadows and riparian forest is a haven for wildlife and native plants. Join local naturalists Lisa Millbank and Don Boucher on an exploration of this hidden Willamette Valley gem. We’ll have the chance to see a diversity of wildlife such as Blacktail Deer, Western Gray Squirrels, woodpeckers (including Acorn Woodpeckers and many other common species), White-breasted Nuthatches, Hutton’s Vireo, Red-shouldered and Red-tailed Hawks, American Kestrel, Northern Harrier and more! We may also spot signs of Bobcat, Coyote and Gray Fox!
We hope you can join us for this inspiring walk through Owen’s Farm.
