    Willamette Valley Wet Prairies Tour

    All day
    06-01-2018
    Rickreall, OR, United States
    Rickreall, OR, United States

    Willamette Valley wet prairies are among the most endangered habitat types in the state of Oregon, and among the rarest of North American ecosystems. Come tour Mud Slough Wetland with wetland banker Mark Knaupp and TWC Executive Director Esther Lev.  Over the past 24 years Mark has restored 550 acres of Willamette Valley Prairie Wetland.  Now thousands of native prairie plants, including some rare species, have sprung up on their own and turned the wetlands into a tapestry of color and texture. The purple and white popcorn flower, common downingia, and veronica, dark green tufts of sedge, and delicate tufted hairgrass provide habitat for a variety of wildlife including the showy pink Nelson’s checkermallow that is listed as “threatened” under the federal Endangered Species Act.

    WHAT: A guided walk through different sections of the Mud Slough property with property owner and steward Mark Knaupp and Esther Lev. Terrain is uneven. Lunch will be included.
