Save The Amazon Creek Headwaters And Much More!

The Amazon Creek headwaters are once again under grave threat from an intensive development proposal. At stake is a 26 acre property located at the end of West Amazon Drive at Martin St.

The owners of the property have filed for a 47 lot housing development (PUD). Development would decimate this 26 acre Amazon Headwaters Keystone area and ruin Eugene’s natural forested landscape on this sensitive site. The parcel features two main branches of the Amazon Creek Headwaters as well as habitat for wildlife.

Erin Noble had committed to assist in these efforts before he tragically died in a light plane crash on June 23, 2012. He was an avid hiker who frequently trekked through the Headwaters area to the Ridgeline Trail and Spencer's Butte Summit. His family, representing Southeast neighbors, is working with agents to facilitate potential purchase of the property for public parklands.

Won’t you help keep the Amazon Headwaters and Eugene’s forest safe for future generations?

From downtown Eugene, drive south on Patterson & Hilyard to 34th; turn left on West Amazon Drive. Go .7 mi. to Fox Hollow Rd. and turn Right. Drive 2.2 miles to the Ridgeline Trail Fox Hollow Rd. Parking lot. The threatened Amazon Creek Headwaters property starts approx. 2/3 mile on the downhill (Martin) trail just left of the information kiosk.
