"Reed College Canyon: Bird Watching Pond on Campus" Eastmoreland Off The Beaten Path Tip by glabah
Eastmoreland Off The Beaten Path: 5 reviews and 21 photos
Reed College is a small liberal arts college in southeast Portland. It is reasonably well known, and has created some attention due to the eccentric nature of some of the people that have attended there over the years.
In the middle of the campus there is a gultch with a small lake, which has been allowed to exist in a natural state. In recent years, Reed College has taken some considerable interest in this natural area. Today, there are official "Canyon Day" events where students and others from the community help rebuilt the natural environment by removing invasive plant species and replace them with native plants.
The area has also been recognized as a state game refuge with all applicable laws in force.
The pond in the middle of the canyon is a popular place for geese and ducks, and from time to time it is possible to see various other birds there, including Great Blue Heron.
A bark dust or dirt (depending on the location) path leads around the entire perimeter of the pond, and continues westward pretty much all the way to SE 28th Avenue.
The address of the college is 3203 SE Woodstock, Portland 97202. However, there are many access points to the campus. The Canyon is pretty much in the geographic center of the campus.
An attractive pedestrian bridge crosses the pond and connects from one side of campus to the other.
