Welcome to west eugene wetlands!
Visitors can view wildlife and restored wetlands while walking trails, playing a round of disc golf, or
riding the Fern Ridge Bicycle Path through the wetlands. The 0.5 mile Tsanchiifin Walk trail is named
after a local band of Kalapuya Indian. Stewart Pond is a seasonal emergent wetland. It is home to
many species of waterfowl. Geese and ducks are numerous during the wet season. The first 18-hole
disc golf course on BLM-managed lands was built here. The Meadowlark Prairie overlook is located on
Greenhill Road, between West 11th Avenue and Royal Avenue. The overlook has picnic tables covered
by a shelter, bathrooms and interpretive signs.
