Luckiamute Confluence Tour

September 23 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

 

 

 

 

Water is life! Explore our local rivers that are the lifeblood of the mid-Willamette Valley’s people and wildlife. Join this special interactive tour of the Luckiamute River near its confluence with the Willamette River and nearby Santiam River in Polk County. This free and family-friendly outing is co-hosted by Greenbelt Land Trust, Luckiamute Watershed Council, and Polk Soil & Water Conservation District. We’ll see first-hand select land and water protection projects underway, habitat restoration efforts in action, and how the power of partnerships helps to conserve this place we all call home. Tour sites include the upstream Jont Creek tributary of the Luckiamute River and downstream’s Luckiamute State Natural Area and the Willamette Bluffs conservation area. Come learn about this dynamic river system in our backyard- it’s rich in cultural history and natural importance!

Note: There will be a fair amount of walking on this tour.
