Fernhill Wetlands
Fernhill Road
Forest Grove, OR

Fernhill Wetlands is located near the confluence of Gales Creek and the Tualatin River. This peaceful site, located just minutes from downtown Forest Grove, attracts wildlife including herons, hawks, eagles and beavers.  This is an ideal place to spot migratory birds and waterfowl. There are short trails and viewing stands that make it easy to view the myriad wildlife. Waterfowl populations are daily in the thousands from November through March. Shorebirds occur (at least 17 species recorded thus far) in numbers frequently exceeding 100 birds in spring, fall, and sometimes in winter.

Wetlands has new Friends

A new group, the Friends of Fernhill Wetlands (FOFW), has organized and wants to invite area residents to join its ranks.  FOFW is a group of volunteers working together to enhance and preserve Fernhill Wetlands and its natural community while providing a unique setting for education and recreation.  The group's goal is to bring together people from business, education, government and citizenry to ensure a heritage of scenic beauty and human connection to nature for generations to come.  The Friends are evaluating new meeting venues and formats.  Stay tuned for announcements of future meetings and events.  Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
