Living River Exploration Days at Green Island
2nd Saturday of the Month, March - December
8am-4pm at Green Island
Take a walk near the place the Willamette and the McKenzie Rivers meet. Observe 15 years of tree-planting work on Green Island, a habitat for beaver, river otter, and over 150 species of birds. If you’re looking for a special place to connect to nature this year, join in the fun on the second Saturday’s, March through December, and explore the Living Rivers in your backyard!
Because this property is a privately-owned space in active conservation, there are a few things to know before you visit:
- No pets, please. This area is in conservation and all domestic animals are prohibited.
- There will be a port-a-potty available but no other facilities.
- Bring water with you, there is no potable water on-site.
- Green Island is adjacent to public lands that are used for hunting during bird and deer seasons, you may hear gunshots during these seasons. Hunting is strictly prohibited at Green Island.
- Bikes are great. The trails are a mix off loose gravel and dirt farm roads so big tires are better.
- Help us to be good neighbors! Please drive under 5 MPH past the houses on Green Island Rd.
- Gates will be closed at 3pm.
Please practice COVID-19 safety during your visit. Bring a mask/face-covering and maintain a safe physical distance from other visitors outside of your group.
This event is free and does not require registration. We will have an optional registration station near the entrance. Your participation in registering helps McKenzie River Trust to access funding so that we can continue to offer this space for recreation.
