The Natural Areas Action Team
We are committed to raising awareness of our abundant natural areas in Corvallis and throughout Benton County. Our purpose is to ensure that everyone in the community is taking part in stewardship of the natural resources we all enjoy.
Backyard Wildlife Connections
Benton County was certified as the first Community Wildlife Habitat in Oregon by the National Wildlife Federation. Now we’re working to increase the number of certified yards. Find out how you can get your yard certified as a wildlife habitat.
Natural Areas Celebration Week
Hikes, walks, workshops and lectures—there’s something for everyone! Takes place each year during the first week in May. See the schedule of events for May 7–15, 2016.
VISION: Our natural features, hillsides, floodplains, streams, wetlands, and other open spaces and natural areas are protected and treasured.
