Horseshoe Lake Willamette Valley Native Bees **Full – Waitlist Available**

June 23 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Contact Outreach Manager Matt Benotsch to register: mbenotsch@greenbeltlandtrust.org

Join Greenbelt Land Trust and August Jackson, author of The Bees of the Willamette Valley: A Comprehensive Guide to Genera for an exploration of the native bees of Horseshoe Lake during National Pollinator Week.

Horseshoe Lake is a 236 acre floodplain property acquired through conservation easements and purchases with four landowners in 2012 and 2013. Located on the east bank of the Willamette River between Corvallis and Albany, this property is a historic ox-bow of the Willamette River, and has a mix of habitats, including wetlands, prairie, and riparian forest.

We will tour the property, visiting several habitats to see which native bees and other pollinators are out and about doing their important work. We will also learn about Greenbelt’s restoration work at Horseshoe Lake to restore prairie and floodplain forest habitat.

We will be touring at a leisurely pace and covering up to three miles. Long pants and sturdy footwear recommended. Bring your own snacks and water.

Group size is limited and masks are required, but may not need to be worn the whole time.
