Located in the beautiful Willamette Valley, only 30 minutes from Portland, the Senior Estates in Woodburn is a private retirement community immediately adjacent to Interstate I-5. It is also only a short drive to the clear mountain streams of the Cascade Mountains or to the sparkling beaches of the Pacific Ocean. From the time the first home was completed in 1961, it has grown into a community of 1511 privately owned homes surrounding a private 18-hole golf course and a one million dollar clubhouse complex. This narrow course has a defined cut of rough and trees bordering all its fairways. There are only a dozen sand bunkers on the course, and no water hazards, so all the trouble comes from the narrow fairways. The small greens have medium speed and some undulation that includes a few severe breaks. The course was built on flat terrain, but the scenery is beautiful.<\/p>","post_name":"senior-estates-golf-country-club","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.1558","lng":"-122.87","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/oregon-adventurecation\/senior-estates-golf-country-club\/","terms":"an Oregon Adventurecation<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"1":{"ID":"9177","post_title":"Jammin Salmon","post_content":"","post_name":"jammin-salmon","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.1598","lng":"-122.859","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/jammin-salmon\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"2":{"ID":"90493","post_title":"The OGA Golf Course","post_content":"

In 1991, the Oregon Golf Association (OGA) commissioned a study to determine the feasibility of constructing an 18-hole golf course and the financing requirements to undertake such a monumental project. The study determined that the cost of the project, depending on its location, would most likely rule out the dream of the OGA having its own facility, barring an unforeseen miracle. That miracle came in early 1992 when the OGA was approached with an astonishing offer from Tukwila Partners Development Corporation. They were willing to donate more than 179 acres of farmland alongside their real estate development in Woodburn, Ore., for the purpose of constructing and operating a golf course on the land. The partnership between OGA and the Tukwila Partners led to the development of a three-phase construction project that began in July 1993. Phase I included the construction of the first nine holes, a driving range, course maintenance facility and a temporary clubhouse. Phase II saw the completion of the second nine holes and Phase III, completed in February 2000, includes a 14,000-square-foot clubhouse and permanent OGA headquarters.

This greenway preserves a remnant of the gallery forests of high-arching cottonwood, maple and ash trees that once shaded much of the Willamette River bottomlands.

This greenway is officially part of the Willamette Mission State Park (Site H4 on Heritage Loop) across the river. Nearby corn fields on Grand Island have regularly hosted huge flocks of roosting Barn Swallows in late summer\/early fall - at least 250,000 in some years.

Fifty years ago, the Santiam Golf Course was barely a dream. A group of seven men from the Sublimity, Aumsville and Stayton communities were instrumental in transforming their vision of a community golf course into a reality. These men wanted the golf facility to provide good golf, fun and entertainment for the families and friends of the area and to always remain affordable in price. In the meantime, inquiries to the Chamber of Commerce regarding golf facilities in the immediate area were becoming more frequent. Fortunately, a landowner of approximately 110 acres, Norm Peak, posted his land for sale. And after some negotiations, a deal was struck and arrangements to purchase the land were under way. Bill Gehlen, an attorney, filed the necessary papers with the Oregon Secretary of State recording Santiam Golf Club as a non-profit corporation, thus becoming Santiam Golf Club, Inc. Shares of stock at $257, plus 40 hours of labor, were offered to those closest to the project. After that, shares were sold at approximately $350 per share with the same 40 hours of donated labor attached as a condition of share purchase price. On March 4, 1957, these seven founders: A.J. Frank, Roy Phillipi, William Gehlen, John D. Davis, Walter D. Miller, Harmon Drushella and M. L. Morey, all golfers, were recorded as the first directors of the new corporation they had founded and directed. Although, originally, the Santiam Golf Club board consisted of 12 members, this number created too much confusion and eventually the board membership was lowered to seven members. The land was covered with brush and small trees. The designer of the course, Fred Federspiel, a golf architect, along with a couple of the founders, walked the land laying out the placement of the tees and greens according to the course blueprint. Bill Rauscher, a nearby neighbor, was hired to use his small “Cat” with a heavy disc to break up the soil and tear up roots. Stockholders of the new organization formed a human line across the fairways to pick up sticks and roots, which they moved down the line into a pile and later burned. They did this on all fairways of the original nine. Most of this work was done evenings after the regular workday. Rauscher used his small Cat to push soil together to form the basic greens and tees. Then teams of five or six men per green with shovels were assigned to form final shapes. The greens surfaces were spaded to the depth of the shovel and to facilitate cup placements in the finished greens all rocks were removed down to the size of pea gravel. The work went along throughout the summer. In or about September, Rauscher formed the newly cleared fairways and roughs. The grass seed was sown on all the worked surfaces and the greens were ready for play the forthcoming spring! While the course was being prepared, the first clubhouse was being built. Luther Nokelby, with the help of other stockholders, was in charge of construction. The building consisted of a pro shop, storage area, small kitchen, coffee bar and clubroom. Sometime after the first nine opened a dining room named the Sandtrap was added. In the early 1960s, the board approved the expansion of the course to eighteen holes. To finance the cost of the new nine, a loan of $40,000 was secured from First National Bank of Oregon. George Shafer, the first greenskeeper, and board President Ralph Lulay, along with architect, Federspiel, walked the grounds for the new nine marking the placement of the new tees and greens. The brush was beaten down with Rauscher’s heavy disc to begin clearing the terrain. A large Cat and scraper were brought in to do the earth moving. The ground was covered with rocks, so the first process was to pick up rocks mechanically and deposit them under the greens to be built. The soil that was to form the greens was dug up from a couple of deep ditches which earlier had been dug to help prevent water from running across the fairways. Topsoil was also obtained from land near the highway. Shafer, who closely monitored the forming of the greens was also instrumental in shaping the lake along the 5th fairway, this lake ultimately named “Lake George”. Some fairways were renumbered and the new holes became predominantly the front nine. The eighteen-hole course was amazingly ready for play the following summer! Several years later, in February 1967, as recommended by the accounting firm of Arthur Young & Co., the articles of incorporation were amended to establish the corporation as a “for profit” company. In the following May, the golf club purchased 17 adjoining acres from Clarence Zuber. Two years later, in 1970, a liquor license was acquired. The clubhouse has gone through several alterations and changes in cuisine. Following a clubhouse fire in 1980, Kay Kelly built a larger and more adequate clubhouse and restaurant. The first new restaurant managers were Kent Hazelwood and Paul Hartwell. The restaurant was named the Ford Garage. This was followed by Mara’s (an Italian cuisine), then LaEstrellita’s Mexican Restaurant, and is currently The Santiam Steak House. The facility is now complete with a seating capacity of 180; including a sunroom and patio area catering to tournaments, special parties, banquets and wedding receptions. There have been many improvements in recent years. All the greens have been re-modeled to USGA standards. Computerized irrigation has since been strategically installed. A new, large maintenance building, cart shed and many other on-course improvements, including concrete and\/or paved cart paths along all fairways have added to our movement into the 21st century. . Many improvements on the second nine were completed with the use of heavy equipment donated by Frank Lumber Co., Lulay Bros. Lumber Co., Roy Philippi, “Dutch” Deetz and others. Stockholders have contributed many hours of volunteer labor. The pro-shop is now fully-equipped, sporting the latest golf merchandise and attire. For several years, Jack White, the first golf pro, oversaw the facility. Jack Coppedge, the 6th Santiam Golf Club professional held the position for many years until his death in 1997. Sporadic remodeling continues and the building has undergone many major interior improvements and has recently been crowned with a new roof. The driving range and the parking lot have been expanded to facilitate tournament crowds. The corporation, owned by 306 plus stockholders, holds its annual meeting in the company banquet room, whereas in compliance with the company by-laws, an incumbent director whose 3-year term is up, is either voted back in by the stockholders or is succeeded by a new director to hold sacred the voice and interests of the stockholders and the corporation and to not lose sight of the original dream of the founding fathers. The founding fathers would be so proud to see that the beautiful Santiam Golf Club, Inc., has flourished to 21st century standards and that their vision of an affordable, family-oriented entertainment facility continues to be upheld to this day.<\/p>","post_name":"santiam-golf-club","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.8253","lng":"-122.823","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/oregon-adventurecation\/santiam-golf-club\/","terms":"an Oregon Adventurecation<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"70":{"ID":"9363","post_title":"Northwest Guides Outfitters","post_content":"","post_name":"northwest-guides-outfitters","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.481","lng":"-122.865","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/northwest-guides-outfitters\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"71":{"ID":"109689","post_title":"Bayou Golf Club","post_content":"","post_name":"bayou-golf-club","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.1731","lng":"-123.21","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/bayou-golf-club\/","terms":"a Golf Course or Attraction<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"72":{"ID":"9644","post_title":"Tarpon Invesments Llc","post_content":"","post_name":"tarpon-invesments-llc","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.3846","lng":"-122.64","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/tarpon-invesments-llc\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"73":{"ID":"9718","post_title":"Western Fishing Adventures","post_content":"","post_name":"western-fishing-adventures","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.3846","lng":"-122.64","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/western-fishing-adventures\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"74":{"ID":"9046","post_title":"G B Photography","post_content":"","post_name":"g-b-photography","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.4176","lng":"-122.675","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/g-b-photography\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"75":{"ID":"9463","post_title":"Reel Life Fishing Adventures","post_content":"","post_name":"reel-life-fishing-adventures","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.4792","lng":"-122.808","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/reel-life-fishing-adventures\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"76":{"ID":"665476","post_title":"Camassia Natural Area","post_content":"

Forest edges host vireos, chickadees, and warblers. Hawks and Turkey Vultures soar past at eye level, high over the river and freeway below.

The lower river below Estacada is a great place for beginning paddlers to get a taste of river running. This stretch also attracts many anglers seeking chinook and summer steelhead in the spring, coho (silver) salmon in the fall, and winter steelhead from December through March.

This unique downtown loop on the banks of the Willamette River offers some of Portland’s best city views and is a must-see for visitors. The paved route consists of a path through Waterfront Park on the west side and the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade on the other side. The Steel Bridge is the north connection across the river, with the Hawthorne Bridge at the south end.<\/p>\r\n

The west side meanders past the Salmon Street Springs, beelines through the riverside park and even bisects the site of the thriving Saturday Market (actually, it’s open on Sundays, too). The east side is a clever combination of floating sections, ramps and concrete pathway. From this side you can enjoy spectacular water-level views of downtown.<\/p>\r\n

On the map shown here, the starting point is the end of SE Salmon Street, a convenient place to access this loop – but there are countless other places to connect. Because this route doesn’t follow actual streets, the mapping software won’t show it - but you can, easily, by paying attention to signs and general direction.<\/p>\r\n

The adventurous can extend this ride in a couple ways. On the east side, instead of taking the ramp up to the Hawthorne Bridge, you can continue south past the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (slow down here!) and connect to the Springwater Corridor, which parallels the river for several miles before turning east and heading 20+ miles out toward Mt. Hood.<\/p>\r\n

On the west, you can also head south from the Hawthorne Bridge. With some navigating savvy, you can make your way via paths and streets to the South Waterfront, where you can actually put your bike on a tram car and head up the hill for some downhill fun back to the river.<\/p>\r\n

Note: This is a heavily used path, for all kinds of locomotion. Don’t expect to go fast, and please be considerate of everyone around you.<\/p>\r\n

This traditional town park with tall shade trees was historically a landing point for steamboats on the Willamette River. Now you can explore the river by canoe from the boat ramp. Look for Spotted Sandpiper, Green Heron, and waterfowl along the river?s edge. A universally accessible municipal trail is being developed to give birders access to riparian forest, brushland and oaks on reclaimed industrial lands to the NW of this park. Plans include an overlook of the municipal wastewater treatment ponds, which have historically been a local birding hotspot for waterfowl, shorebirds, and songbirds in migration. The bridge over the Willamette River 0.4 mi S on Main St provides a link to the Willamette Loop (between sites W1 and W2).

Forest Park's extensive system of trails, fire lanes and roads provide excellent opportunities for hiking, walking, running, and simply escaping the urban atmosphere. An abundance of wildlife (more than 112 bird and 62 mammal species) can be found in the park.<\/p>\r\n

The 30.2 mile long Wildwood Trail, a National Recreation Trail, is part of the region’s 40-Mile Loop system that links Forest Park to pedestrian and other routes along the Columbia River to Gresham, to Southeast Portland, along the Willamette Greenway, and back to the Marquam Trail in Southwest Portland.<\/p>","post_name":"forest-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.572","lng":"-122.771","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/oregon-adventurecation\/forest-park\/","terms":"an Outdoors & Nature<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"157":{"ID":"109681","post_title":"Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge","post_content":"

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.

The site which now bears the name Cathedral Park is steeped in history. It is believed to be one of the 14 Lewis and Clark landing sites in the Vancouver-Portland area: William Clark and eight men camped there on April 2, 1806. This spot had been a fishing and camping site for many area Indian tribes. In 1847, the founder of St. Johns, James John, settled on the site and operated a ferry to Linnton across the Willamette River. In 1931, the St. Johns Bridge was built on the site with 400-ft towers and a main span of 1,207 feet. It is the only steel suspension bridge in Portland and is designated as an official historical landmark.

In the early 1970s, Howard Galbraith, the `honorary mayor` of unincorporated St. Johns, got tired of the junkyard state of the area under the eastern end of the bridge. He organized a drive that eventually raised $7.5 million to build a park. After eight years of community fundraising, combined with state, county and city funding, the park was dedicated at a community celebration on May 3, 1980. It got its name from a photo of the St. Johns Bridge by Al Monner that appeared on the front page of the Oregon Journal in 1968. Reference was made to its beautiful cathedral-like arches and the park found its name.<\/p>","post_name":"cathedral-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.5886","lng":"-122.761","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/oregon-adventurecation\/cathedral-park\/","terms":"an

This 1,200-acre reservoir is nestled in the foothills of the Coast Range, just west of Forest Grove. Hagg Lake has long been a favorite still- water retreat for Multnomah and Washington county residents. It reaches depths of over 100 feet and is well-stocked with rainbow trout, some reaching 7 pounds. Smallmouth bass and brown bullhead are also present. Many a young angler has landed his or her first fish at Hagg Lake!

There are two boat launches on the lake, and several picnic grounds. If the fish aren’t biting, Hagg Lake also offers great waterskiing, personal watercraft riding and other boating pursuits. It’s also surrounded by 15 miles of biking and hiking trails, where you might encounter the elk, deer, coyote or even bobcat that call these woods home. The mixture of habitats around Hagg Lake attracts a variety of bird life, including nesting pairs of bald eagles and ospreys.

The Clackamas is an incredible resource for Portland area residents—after all, how many major metropolitan areas have a federally designated “National Wild and Scenic” river flowing through their backyard! The river’s upper stretches, where it flows through dense forests and basalt canyons, offers up white water rafting and kayaking opportunities to challenge the most expert paddlers. The lower river below Estacada is a great place for beginning paddlers to get a taste of river running. This stretch also attracts many anglers seeking chinook and summer steelhead in the spring, coho (silver) salmon in the fall, and winter steelhead from December through March.

Milo McIver provides multiple recreation opportunities. Some of the most popular include camping, picnicking, boating, hiking, fishing, attending interpretive programs, viewing wildlife, bird watching, horseback riding, biking.<\/p>

Within this little-known gem, you can spend a day or a week exploring the river, forest and fields. River-lovers can challenge the sometimes wild (but always picturesque) Clackamas river with rafts, canoes or kayaks.<\/p>\r\n

Prefer to stay dry? You can hike, or ride your horse. Still too sweaty for you? Spend a lazy afternoon playing the year-round, 18-hole disc golf course. Discs for putting and driving are available at the park.<\/p>\r\n

If you're planning a special gathering, reservable picnic sites with a shelter are available. If you just need to get away for a while, individual and group campsites are waiting for you. While staying at McIver during the summer, we have family oriented interpretive programs -- from guided hikes to nature crafts.<\/p>\r\n

Silver Falls offers numerous recreation opportunities including hiking, horseback riding, fishing, picnicking, swimming, biking, viewing scenery, and viewing interpretive sites.<\/p>

The Canyon Trail is a nationally recognized trail system that leads hikers along the banks of the north and south forks of Silver Creek. It takes you to ten majestic water falls, ranging from the grand South Falls (177 feet), to the delicate Drake Falls (27 feet). Four of these falls have an amphitheater-like surrounding where you can walk behind the falls and feel the misty, crisp spray.<\/p>\r\n

The park has over 25 miles of trails for hiking (14 miles of horse trails). Pets are welcome on all but 5 miles. Because the canyon trail is narrow and bordered by sharp drop-offs in spots, bicycles, skate boards, in-line skates and pets are not allowed on the canyon trail. If you have any questions about which trails will accommodate pets, check with park staff.<\/p>\r\n

At Silver Falls, you will find unique group camping areas like the Old and New Ranch buildings, Silver Creek Youth Camp, North Falls trailer and tent areas, RV, cabin and tent camping in the overnight campground. Additional cabin rentals and complete group accommodations can be found at Silver Falls Conference Center.<\/p>\r\n

Guided daytime horse trail rides for people of all abilities are available from Memorial Day to Labor Day for a fee. For more information or to make special arrangements, contact the park.<\/p>\r\n

Vital stats: A small fee or annual pass are required for day-use of the park.

The setting is the confluence of three small creeks, which drains the southern Dead Indian Plateau. Beaver Dam Creek, Daley Creek and Deadwood Creek flow lazily through an area of grassy banks, false hellebore, and Beaver ponds. The trail connects Beaver Dam and Daley Creek campgrounds forming a partial loop. A range fence encloses the area protecting the riparian area from range cattle.

The trail is shades by large Douglas fir, white pine and white fir with an understory of Pacific yew - recognized by its reddish peeling bark and dark green, flat, short pointed needles. The Pacific yew is poisonous; eating the foliage or seeds (contained in bright red berries) can result in death. Despite its small size the yew has proven very useful over the years as Native Americans used the wood for archery bows and canoe paddles. Today a local craftsman makes bows for violins and cellos. No wood is more resistant to decay and the yew is favored for fence posts. In recent years the bark has been used with promising results in cancer research.

The yew is a shade loving tree which dies when the canopy overhead is removed. Once abundant, it is now found primarily among pockets of old growth forest along stream banks and in shady canyons.

If you hike the trail in early season, look for wildflowers including bleeding heart, calypso orchid, and trillium. You will also see several dead trees or 'snags' that have become home for a variety of cavity nesting birds such as the large and colorful pileated woodpecker and the red breasted nuthatch, whose call (a low nasal sounding 'yaahnk....yaahnk,') can almost be heard in these woods.

Watch overhead above the creek and listen for the raucous chatter of the belted Kingfisher who makes his livelihood by capturing small fish in a headlong dive to the water. The bank of the creek will reveal evidence of beaver gnawed branches. If you quietly walk the trail in the early morning or evening you may be the lucky one who catches a glimpse of this furry engineer at work on one of the several active dams visible from the trail.

This wildlife area is on the site of Camp Adair, a US Army training cantonment, which for a few years in the 1940s was effectively Oregon's second-largest city. The area is now a complex of brushland, riparian woods, and restored wetlands. The street grid from Camp Adair still remains, providing more than 20 mi of mostly level paths (many paved) that are ideal for bicycle birding. In winter, Song and Sooty Fox Sparrows are abundant in the brushy hedgerows. Sharp-shinned Hawk, Cooper's Hawk, and Merlin prey on the large sparrow and finch flocks. Wood Duck and Hooded Merganser are especially easy to find here in spring. Solitary Sandpiper shows up regularly in late April and again in early fall; check wooded ponds. This is the Willamette Valley's most important nesting area for Yellow-breasted Chat; they are easy to hear March - June, but good luck spotting one! For a more vigorous hike, the Coffin Butte trail climbs 200 ft into oak woodland with a remnant upland prairie. Look here for nesting Cassin's Vireo, Chipping Sparrow and Lazuli Bunting along with resident Hutton's Vireo. Fallouts of migrant warbler occur in April when oaks and maples are budding.

The development of a display and test garden was initiated in 1950 by the Portland Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society.

Sersanous, one of the group assigned to select a new site, suggested the garden's present location near Reed College. Referred to as Shakespeare Island by Reed College students because of the Shakespearean plays that had been performed there, it was abandoned and overgrown with brush and blackberries. Through the efforts of chapter memebers and other volunteers, and with the support of Park Superintendent C.P. Keyser, the garden flourished.

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.

Paddlers can overnight at a boat-in campground just above the Willamette?s confluence with the Santiam and Luckiamute rivers, where Northern Rough-winged Swallow nests. In the south unit, oaks grow on high ground; check for White-breasted Nuthatch and Western Bluebird. Ponds in former gravel quarries are home to a significant population of Western Pond Turtle; please heed the signs to avoid disturbing the turtles. Ash swales in both units host nesting Swainson?s Thrush and Black-headed Grosbeak. Look for nesting Vesper Sparrow, Savannah Sparrow and wintering Western Meadowlark in the native meadow restorations. Brushy areas make this one of the valley?s best wintering sparrow patches, with chance of White-throated, Lincoln?s and Swamp Sparrow along with more common species. In winter, both units can flood which limits access, unless you bring a canoe; on weekends there can be many duck hunters.

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.

At 4,097 ft, this mountain - known as Chintimini to native people of the region - is the highest point in the Coast Range. The summit offers panoramic views of the Willamette Valley, Coast Range, the Cascades, and even the Pacific Ocean. It draws alpine species not found elsewhere in the Willamette Valley, including wintering flocks of Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch (arriving in Nov), migrant American Pipit and Horned Lark, and occasional Snow Bunting. Mature stands of noble fir and extensive grassy meadows are unique for the central Coast Range. Species that are typical of open forests on the east slope of the Oregon Cascades, such as Clark's Nutcracker and Mountain Chickadee, are found occasionally as vagrants, and some such as Townsend's Solitaire may nest. Resident birds more typical of the Pacific Northwest forests include Mountain Quail, Northern Pygmy-Owl, Gray Jay, and Red Crossbill. In nesting season these are joined by Hammond's Flycatcher and Hermit Warbler. This is one of Oregon?s best sites for Sooty Grouse. 'Hooting' season begins in mid- to late-March, peaks in April, and continues into June. Early summer may yield sightings of hens with chicks as they feed along roads. A NW Forest Pass is required for access.
