Volunteers with The Nature Conservancy have restored oak woodlands and meadows on this 26-ac site. In springtime native wildflowers abound on a rocky plateau that was scoured by the Missoula floods at the end of the last ice age. Osprey nest on site, Anna’s and migrant Rufous Hummingbirds joust over the meadows, and waterfowl may rest in the small ponds. Look closely for the hanging nests of Bushtits. Forest edges host vireos, chickadees, and warblers. Hawks and Turkey Vultures soar past at eye level, high over the river and freeway below.
From I-205 southbound, take Exit 8 (West Linn) and turn L at the end of the exit ramp. After crossing under the freeway, turn R onto Willamette Falls Dr just before the gas station. After one block, Willamette Falls Dr turns 90 degrees to the L; continue on Willamette Falls for 0.25 mi. Turn R on Sunset Ave, which continues uphill, passing over I-205. Take the first R on Walnut St, which ends at the preserve entrance and parking area.
