WREN Wanders are casual walks through various West Eugene Wetlands sites each second Tuesday of every month. Usually a birding expert, a biologist, and a botanist accompany the group so these walks have an overall nature emphasis. These exciting opportunities are FREE to the public and provide observation, education and inspiration in our surrounding natural spaces. WREN staff and volunteers guide these walks.
