EUGENE, Ore. — When was the last time you visited your community park?

Awbrey Park in Santa Clara is more than just playground and open field. There’s a hidden natural area.

Four years ago you could hardly see it, let alone walk on it. Volunteers teamed up with the City of Eugene to bring it back to life. This weekend they’re inviting the community to take a tour.

Brandi Ferguson, a volunteer as well as development director for McKenzie River Trust, spoke to KEZI 9 News about the project.

The native plant tour and celebration is Saturday, May 4 from noon to 3 p.m. at Awbrey Park located off River Road and Spring Creek.
