Volunteer Fence Pull

Want to help wildlife at Bald Hill Farm? Join Greenbelt staff and volunteers as we reduce the amount of barbed-wire fence along trails so that wildlife, such as deer, can move safely and easily around this conservation area. After the work party, join the after-party at the farmhouse where there will be hot cocoa and treats to warm you up!

  • Be active at your own pace for several hours
  • Hike up to 2 miles on trail surfaces
  • Carry hand tools and gear
  • Lift, bend, and kneel

We’ll provide training and equipment appropriate to the task. More information about the site location and directions will be emailed to registered volunteers prior to the event.

Kids Wildlife Walk & Crafts

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 TrustHike 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.

 

 

Turtle Walk at Little Willamette **FILLED**

This walk has filled. To reserve a spot on the waitlist, 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!

For more information or to RSVP, please email Rebecca.
