Joyfully Connecting Our Community with the Wonder of the Refuge

Seasonal Trail to Close August 16, 2021

For public safety, the Refuge will close the Seasonal Wetland Trail early this year in conjunction with work resuming on the Chicken Creek Restoration project. Effective August 16th, this trail will close and remain closed through the normal seasonal closure. The Seasonal Wetland Trail will reopen, as normal, May 1st, 2022. Our Year-Round River Trail will remain open during construction, which provides visitors two miles of out-and-back path to explore the Refuge. While we know that trail closures create a temporary inconvenience, please understand that this short-term disruption will ultimately result in much improved habitat for wildlife. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we undergo the last leg of our restoration Project.

Currently, all public events and volunteer activities have been postponed, until further notice, at Tualatin River NWR. The Visitor Center is also suspending operations. Thank you for your understanding. Should you have questions, concerns, or comments please contact:

Deputy Project Leader, Eva Kristofik,
