East Regional Park, Cottage Grove, Lane County

This rehabilitated gravel quarry has been
in development for at least 20years.  The 
ponds are home to a fairly stable population 
of Western Pond Turtles. The west trail is 
paved and the other parts well maintained 
natural surface.

The area has good potential as a winter
sparrow  spot and would benefit from 
regular, systematic monitoring.
