Protecting the headwaters of Amazon Creek is vital to the environmental health of the whole watershed. At least three generations of community members have worked tirelessly for more than ten years, at great expense, toward the protection of these fragile areas. These unique headwaters areas are much more valuable to the community as they are now; for safety, open space, special habitat, and water quality reasons; than they would be if developed with new roads and houses that could be sited elsewhere, in a less costly, less dangerous, and less sensitive site.

Just as previous generations in Eugene are honored today for their foresight in preserving Hendricks Park and the upper parts of the two buttes, so as time goes by, will our children and theirs value the decision to save the Amazon Headwaters.
