This natural area sits at the confluence of the Willamette, Molalla and Pudding rivers. Although access to the Molalla and Pudding is limited, the area encompasses a variety of habitats including upland coniferous forest, small ponds near the entrance, open fields, riparian areas, and dynamic floodplain areas. The floodplains of these rivers provide important habitat for waterfowl, wading birds, deer, small mammals, reptiles and amphibians. The park supports one of the largest great blue heron rookeries in the Willamette Valley Feb. through July. See ospreys in spring and summer. Activities here include picnicking, boating, fishing, and wildlife watching. Walking trails meander along the Willamette, through the park’s different habitats.
