To practice and promote land stewardship through education, partnerships, and scientific research.
The Willamette Resources and Educational Network (WREN) was born of a community-acknowledged need which was addressed in the West Eugene Wetlands Plan. WREN embarked on the development of an environmental education program that would help community members understand the importance and need for long term stewardship and preservation of the wetlands. As a result, these public lands are a resource that will be enjoyed and appreciated for years to come.
Since 2002 WREN has served more than 50,000 community members, through classroom outreach programs, field trips, family exploration days, wetland wanders, adult trainings and workshops, and community outreach events.
