Did you know the amount of debris you all removed from Eugene’s park land could fill an entire football field? That’s just one of the many little known stats captured in the Eugene Outdoors 2016 Year in Review. Your collective gift of time is monetarily valued at a total of $357,730 – but it means so much more than that to us. Together, we truly are activating the power of parks.
As a small token of thanks for everything you have done and for your continued dedication to improving the quality-of-life in Eugene, we have compiled a few of your greatest hits. Though we couldn’t possibly capture all the great work done by every volunteer, we hope you enjoy this brief stroll through some of the highlights, accomplishments and stories that shaped the past year. Also, get a glimpse at a few of the goals we’ve set for the year ahead.
