North-Bank Habitat Restoration Work Party

In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

Walama Restoration Project is currently working to rehabilitate and revegetate the Whilamut Natural Area without the use of chemical herbicides. This site runs along the North Bank Bike Path (just north of the Knickerbocker Bike Bridge) in Eugene.
In February we will be working to hand-pull small weeds and dig out Himalayan blackberries.
Your participation can help create more natural beauty along the North Bank Bike Path as well as preserve the valley’s biological legacy into the future. WRP is inviting the community to help make a difference concerning these pressing issues by assisting with the reclamation of native prairie habitat to boost local biodiversity and improved forage for native pollinator species. Join us to learn about and protect critically imperiled Willamette Valley habitat via non-chemical prairie restoration techniques such as selective invasive species removal, site preparation and maintenance, and shade fabric maintenance and removal. No experience is necessary; gloves, tools, instructions and refreshments are provided! Meet at the Whilamut Natural Area in East Alton Baker Park, just north of the Knickerbocker Bike Bridge.
