Kids are naturally drawn to wildlife through stories, the imagination, and personal experience. By connecting with wildlife, kids learn more about nature and themselves. Join Greenbelt Land Trust, Hike it Baby, and a wildlife biologist for a special outing where we’ll explore wildlife signs and tracks at Bald Hill Farm. We’ll enjoy a group story about Oregon’s wildlife (written by a local author), take a walk along the forested Mulkey Ridge trail in search of wildlife signs, and make a wildlife-themed craft you can take home!
This event is free and family-friendly. Although kids of all ages are welcome, this event is ideal for ages 4 to 10. Light snacks provided.
Space is limited. For more information or to RSVP, please email Rebecca.

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!
