Come check out our new mural!

If you haven’t visited the Frohnmayer Footbridge recently, you’re in for a treat the next time you walk or ride your bike across this gateway into Alton Baker Park. Thanks to support from a City of Eugene Neighborhood Matching Grant and several local businesses and organizations (listed below), Nearby Nature staff and volunteers recently spent 200+ hours creating a new mural on the bridge to beautify this well-used park and pedestrian corridor.

Community members are invited to view the mural from 3-6 pm on August 30 to learn about the plants and animals it features, meet Nearby Nature staff and volunteers, and find out how to get involved in the group’s education and park caretaking work. All are invited to join Nearby Nature’s volunteer TAG Team, the “Taskforce Against Graffiti,” which will maintain the mural.
 

Meet at the south end of the Frohnmayer Footbridge.

Community Supporters: True Value Hardware on Willamette, Jerry’s Home Improvement, Harlow Neighbors Association, Citizens Planning Committee for the Whilamut Natural Area (CPC), Kohl’s, Columbia Bank, UO Geology Club, SOLVE, and Talking Walls Murals (Portland).
