John Neil Park in Lyons

This is a short but lovely nature walk along two ponds where we most likely can spot beavers at their play, turtles sunning on a log blue Heron stalking around looking or lunch and lots of other birds. We'll continue on to the nearby campground located next to the Santiam River and return to our cars from there. Bring a snack or we can stop at the Gingerbread house at the way home and contribute to their business. I am not sure about the length of this walk but estimate 3 miles. Call me for time and meeting place .
