Event Details

MEETING PLACE: Turtle Flats Entrance 

Join Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah at Turtle Flats and the Glassbar Island property (terrestrial portion, not the island itself) to clean up trash and habitat! This site, near the confluence of the Coast and Middle Forks of the Willamette River, is part of a 300-acre floodplain restoration project. We'll be cleaning up trash and grubbing blackberry roots to stop the spread of this invasive species. Meet at the entrance to Turtle Flats.

Directions: To find Turtle Flats from Eugene, cross the I-5 on 30thAvenue. Take the first left onto Franklin Boulevard. Take the first right onto Franklin Boulevard East and cross under the railroad tracks. As Franklin begins to curve, look for a gate across a gravel road on the left.  Click to see the Turtle Flats entrance on Google Maps.

After the cleanup... join your fellow area volunteers for a post-clean up celebration and FREE lunch at Alton Baker Park at 1:00pm featuring: Track Town Pizza, tea by Mountain Rose Herbs, beer by Ninkasi and Planktown, Pedal Power Music, a RAFFLE, and special thank yous from Mayors Kitty Piercy and Christine Lundberg!
