small map of the management plan for the natural area


The city hopes to completed the management plan for the natural area at the end of 2015. Eventually work will begin on decommissioning legacy trails, building the perimeter trail, and so on. Much work needs to be done to restore the stream outflows into the Willamette River. Please visit the Friends of River View Narual Area [Website]

Local Stewardship

A Facebook page Riverview Natural Area Conservation Project was set up by a concerned citizen. It carries news about watershed issues, nature sightings, and serves as an unapologetic watchdog for the natural area.

A 'Friends of RVNA' group was formed. A Stewardship Agreement was finalized in October 2016. The FoRVNA group has an informative [Website], and a Facebook 'Page'.
