Supporting conservation of the natural environment for wildlife and people.

The mission of the Neighborhood Naturalist program is to teach the people of the Willamette Valley region of Oregon that exciting natural experiences are just outside their window. We also promote the philosophy of bioregionalism.
The Marys Peak Group operates from Corvallis, Oregon and serves the region of Benton, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, and Polk counties—from Yachats to Otis on the Pacific coast and over to the high Cascades. We take our name from the nearby Marys Peak, the highest mountain in the coast range.
