Welcome Back Autumn Leaves and Fall Color!
The days are getting shorter and the nights are colder. As I write this the autumn leaves that inspired the composer and lyricist are at peak color at Island Lakes. Soon wind and rain will drop the leaves on to our lawns, borders, and driveways. With the change in seasons we’ll begin the annual fall leaf pick up. [ READ MORE ]

Living with Beavers on Goodpasture Island
Our neighbors Rae Karp-Curtis and Greg McPherson are working to raise awareness of the growing beaver population on Goodpasture Island and effects upon the urban environment. Should the City of Eugene’s nurtured beaver population success at Delta Ponds end in lethal destruction of beaver that cross the streets or ponds into private ponds and greenways? Or is LIVING WITH BEAVER a better solution for people and our urban ecosystems?

Are you ready for the big QUAKE????
“The next one will be a monster,” DeVonne Maxey of the City’s Office of Emergency Management told attendees at GIN’s general meeting in October. The US Geological Survey and the Oregon Department of Geology have documented that the Juan de Fuca plate is diving under the North American plate building up immense pressure. At some point something’s got to give. They tell us “the big one” is overdue. Ms. Maxey told GIN meeting attendees that having any survival plan is better than having no plan at all. [ READ MORE ]
What’s the Name of that Bird?
Getting to know the birds at Island Lakes enriches our experience as residents. Learning about the natural history of our area contributes to our sense of place. Some bird visitors to Island Lakes are year round residents of the Willamette Valley. Food is plentiful and they enjoy mild winters compared with other places. Life is good, so they stay. Others are migratory and have a calling to travel. They stop at our lakes to rest and feed before resuming their journey. These birds appear only during certain seasons. [ READ MORE ]
