Presentation: Chris Orsinger, Executive Director of Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah, will provide a compelling overview of the major floodplain restoration effort in the Mt. Pisgah area at the confluence of the Coast & Middle Forks of the Willamette. After three acquisitions totaling 1367 acres with six miles of river frontage, the Friends and The Nature Conservancy have collaborated on three major restoration projects to linking 20 historic gravel mining ponds back to the river, to improve rearing and refugia habitat for salmonids. Over 100,000 trees and shrubs have been planted already to restore riparian forest and associated habitats.
When: 6:30PM Monday, May 1st
Where: Roaring Rapids Pizza Company, 4006 Franklin Blvd, Eugene
There will be a board meeting directly following the presentation. TU members are welcome to attend.
