Koll Center Wetlands Park
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.
A family of river otters hunt in this wetland regularly in the early morning hours, catching carp. Waterfowl can be seen in abundance year round. In winter look for Green-winged Teal, Common Merganser, Northern Shoveler, Great Blue Heron and Great Egret. Belted Kingfisher are frequent. In spring and summer watch for Green Heron, and watch Cliff, Barn, Violet-green and Tree Swallows feeding over the wetlands.
