The three 2023 Liz and Bob Frenkel Environment and Hiking Spring Webinars are now available on YouTube with closed caption subtitles. The webinars were produced by Marys Peak Group and the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library.
Reviving the Wetlands at Finley National Wildlife Refuge
A high level of wetland restoration work has already established the Finley Wildlife National Refuge as a significant wildlife refuge that also attracts thousands of visitors each year.
Reviving the Wetlands at Herbert Farm Natural Area
Herbert Natural Area is a little visited, beautiful natural area in the middle of a restoration process. Owned by the City of Corvallis and purchased to be restored as a natural area, the Institute for Applied Ecology has been managing the restoration process, assisted by the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde.
Owens Farm/Jackson-Frazier Wetland Complex
While the Jackson-Frazier Wetland has been a popular hiking area for decades, the wetland extends far beyond the current publicly accessible area. This webinar will present a bold plan to restore the entire wetland and make it publicly accessible through a network of extensive trails.
