The Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge is south of Portland and east of the Willamette Rive across from Ross Island. It is a 141 acre park made up of marshland and hilly trails with a mild grade, running along the Willamette. There is much to see - waterfowl such as mallards, pintails, wigeons, buffleheads, blue herons, green-winged teals, osprey nesting platforms, bald eagles and egrets. Beavers and nutria are found in the wetlands.
Our 3.5 mile walk will take us through Big leaf maples, alders, grand firs, cedars, cottonwoods, dogwood and elderberry.
Dogs are permitted on leashes; please clean up after your pet.
There is also an off leash dog park there.
There are picnic tables, restrooms and water available.
We'll start at the Sellwood River-Front Park parking lot off Oaks Park Way.
Meet by the restrooms.
