A grove of giant cottonwood trees along the banks of Goose Creek hosts a magnificent collection of nests, where hundreds of herons raise their young each year. Walk the banks of the Clackamas River in search of bald eagles, turtles basking in the sun and the tracks of elusive wildlife that call the river home.

Pets policy: To protect plants, wildlife and people, Metro does not allow pets at most regional parks and natural areas. Pets can damage sensitive habitat and threaten wildlife the region has worked to protect. In natural areas where dogs are not allowed, people see more wildlife and get closer to it. Seeing-eye dogs or other service animals are allowed. Please bring cleanup materials. http://www.oregonmetro.gov/parks/pets-policy
