Oregon’s McKenzie River, flowing from the high Cascades down into the Southern Willamette Valley, has been a source of drinking water, food, and recreation for Eugene and neighboring communities throughout recorded history. By the mid-20th century, forestry, construction and development projects had taken their toll, threatening the delicate relationship between the river, wildlife and people determined to live there. Now protective efforts are being implemented, thanks to groups like the McKenzie River Trust. This is the story of people who have stood together to learn about this great resource and work toward preserving the river.
