A 13-ac prairie restoration in this 30-ac park is one of the largest wet prairie remnants in the northern Willamette Valley. Visit May - June to see the peak bloom of native wildflowers (view from the edges of the restoration only). Any time of year is good for birding the accessible portion of the park, which includes riparian ash forest, a creek, and plenty of brush for sparrows. In winter look for Lincoln's Sparrow and Sooty Fox Sparrow, and watch for White-tailed Kite and Northern Harrier hunting over the prairie. Spring and summer bring Green Heron, Willow and Pacific-slope Flycatchers, Marsh Wren, Swainson's Thrush, and other riparian species. Conifers on the edges of the Gopher Valley are close enough that you may hear Northern Pygmy-Owl, Red Crossbill, and Evening Grosbeak.

From Hwy 18 between MP 34 and MP 35 (2 mi NE of Sheridan), turn N at the Dairy Queen onto Gopher Valley Rd. Follow Gopher Valley Rd for 5.5 mi and watch for green signs on the L for the park. Turn L onto a signed gravel road that leads 0.25 mi over a wood-plank bridge to the parking area.

This park is one of the best known waterfowl and shorebird spots in Yamhill County. Comprising a small pond on the L as you drive in, a large wastewater treatment pond in front of the parking area, and two huge ponds to the L (N) of the dike, the area can host waterfowl year-round. In the fall, scan for dabbling and diving ducks, geese and shorebirds. In summer, Osprey regularly hunt the ponds. Access to the ponds is limited, both because it is a wastewater treatment facility, and because it is next to a federal prison. While the main pond is also visible from the shoulder of Hwy 18, stopping there is not advised as this creates a situation of concern for law enforcement.

The Sheridan Wetlands Park is on the S side of Hwy 18, between the Sheridan Federal Correctional Facility and Hwy 18 at Sheridan, just east of the Ballston Rd overpass.

Created for Dusky Canada Geese, this refuge has expansive wetlands, fields, and oak savanna and woodland. Trails, pullouts, observation platforms and overlooks provide excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. Along with Dusky Canada Goose, other subspecies of Canada Goose and Cackling Goose graze the fields as large flocks in winter, when Northern Harrier, Red-tailed Hawk, and Rough-legged Hawk hunt over the fields. The fields are among the best places in the Willamette Valley to see Streaked Horned Lark, as well as American Pipit and (rarely) Lapland Longspur. Wetlands host wintering waterfowl, swans, Great Egret, Bald Eagle, and Peregrine Falcon, with Gyrfalcon and Golden Eagle in some winters. In spring look for Cinnamon Teal and American White Pelican along Coville Rd., or walk dike road S of the Baskett Butte trailhead to see nesting Yellow-headed Blackbird and Wilson?s Phalarope. The north end of the refuge has become a reliable place to see White-tailed Kite and Northern Shrike. The Morgan Lake access (intersection of Smithfield & Livermore Rds) is a good spring and late-summer shorebird spot. The oak woodland and savanna of Baskett Butte hosts Western Wood-Pewee, Hutton?s Vireo, White-breasted Nuthatch, Black-throated Gray and Orange-crowned Warblers, and Lazuli Bunting. Baskett Butte holds the largest remaining population of the endangered Fender?s blue butterfly and its host plant, the Kincaid?s lupine, as well as other rare upland prairie flowers. Interior roads and wetland areas are closed Oct 1 ? March. Baskett Butte trail and several viewing areas are open year round. Restroom facilities are provided at Baskett Butte trailhead.

McNary Golf Course lies in Salem's northern neighborhood of Keizer, on land that once housed the family farm of one of Oregon's most prominent citizens, Governor and U.S. Senator Charles McNary. McNary encompasses 150 acres of meadows. The course is one of the most beautiful layouts in the area with lakes, impeccable fairways and greens. A small pond fronts the 11th hole, and Claggett Creek enters play on four holes. Stately oaks, firs, walnuts, redwoods, and pines line fairways. McNary enjoys excellent drainage, with one of the most playable winter courses in the Northwest. An extensive sprinkler system keeps the course green in the summer. McNary is one of Western Oregon's favorite venues for private tournaments. The signature hole is the 567-yard par-5 18th, which winds past trees on the left and slopes toward the lake along the right. The huge green slopes toward a moat like leg of Claggett Creek.

Since 1989 (with a perfect safety record) Balloon Flying Service of Oregon, Inc. has provided Scenic Hot Air Balloon Rides over the cities of Salem and Keizer daily (weather permitting). We cannot fly when it is raining, foggy or if the surface winds are beyond our safety limits. Flying in the winter months requires you to be more flexible as we sometimes have to wait out early morning fog.<\/p>\r\n

The Hot Air Balloon is the oldest form of air transportation known to man. The first manned flight took place in Paris, France, on November 21st, 1783. To this day, the actual flight has changed little from the first flight over 220 years ago. The major change in ballooning has been in the equipment-and-fabrics that are used in the construction of the \"Modern Hot Air Balloon.\"<\/p>\r\n

Today, the Hot Air Balloon is a registered aircraft with the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and is subject to annual safety inspections. The pilots are required to be Commercially rated (the highest rating available) and are tested under the rules established by the FAA every 24 months.<\/p>","post_name":"balloon-flying-service-of-oregon","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.9046","lng":"-123.083","distance":"24.0","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/outdoor\/balloon-flying-service-of-oregon\/","terms":"an Outdoor Guide<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"6685","post_title":"Rocky Bend Campground","post_content":"Located on the Nestucca River, the Rocky Bend Campground offers fishing for salmon and steelhead during the season.

Playing golf at Salem Golf Course becomes a nature walk with all its natural beauty. Trees line the fairways and numerous wildlife (deer, squirrels, geese and ducks with hawks and osprey flying overhead) can be seen. What’s the story behind this desirable place of relaxation? Back in 1925 local businessmen started this venture by donating $250 each to purchase the John Hughes land grant to develop a first class golf course. One man, Ercel Kay, the grandson of the founder of Thomas Kay Woolen Mills of Salem, brought it all together. Two hundred acres were purchased at $160 per acre including the surrounding land to prevent any housing that would obstruct the beauty. The first nine holes were finished in 1927 and the second nine in 1928. On the 6th tee was a Chinese farm. A four-acre apple orchard occupies the center bordering on three fairways. When the golf course first opened to the public, the green fees were 25 cents for the nine holes and 40 cents for the full eighteen holes. In 1965, son of Ercel, and great grandson of the Mission Mill owner, Thomas Kay) bought the course from his father. Over the last 75 years the original buildings have been remodeled and enlarged many times. The club has re-built most of the greens and tees and added extensively to its practice facilities. It remains today, virtually unchanged, a semi-private facility enjoyed by the public as well as its 250 members.<\/p>","post_name":"salem-golf-club","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.913","lng":"-123.072","distance":"24.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/salem-golf-club\/","terms":"a Golf Course or Attraction<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"1201","post_title":"Salem Riverfront Park","post_content":"
