EUGENE, Ore -- Community members are invited to get outdoors and explore on "Get Outdoors Oregon Day."
#GetOutdoorsOR is a social media campaign to encourage Oregonians to explore rivers, forests, wetlands and wild places on June 9. There are 21 events taking place, including a celebration at Green Island.
Green Island is a conservation site that the nonprofit McKenzie River Trust acquired more than a decade ago. It is located north of Coburg where the McKenzie and Willamette rivers meet. For a list of other events in Oregon, click here.
