Amazon Creek Tree Planting (rescheduled)


Egret in Amazon Creek
Eugene Park Stewards need 50 volunteers to plant 130 native trees along Amazon Creek!  Amazon Creek, Eugene’s second largest waterway, begins near Spencer Butte and then flows north from Eugene before joining the Long Tom River, flowing directly into several wildlife reserve areas. Improving our riparian forest, which provides shade along our urban waterways, will help to reduce the temperature of the creek and benefit a diversity of wildlife.  Stewardship of the creeks quality and natural resources fall to the City of Eugene.  Volunteers can play a significant role in contributing to the health of the creek by helping to plant and steward native trees like ponderosa pine, Douglas hawthorn, Oregon ash, and white oak.
