Meldrum Bar Park news

The natural area surrounding Rinearson Pond will be restored this summer. Already a herd of goats has chomped down the invasive Himalayan blackberries and English Ivy. Plans include improvements to the dam that creates the pond so that fish, amphibians, mammals, and turtles can easily move from the might Willamette River to sheltered areas along Rinearson Creek and pond.

Watch these changes bring more urban wildlife to the park next summer and autumn.
