Welcome to the Jacksonville Woodlands Association
In 1989, alarmed by the prospect of development destroying the scenic wooded hillsides surrounding their National Historic Landmark City, the citizens of Jacksonville, Oregon rallied to form the non-profit Jacksonville Woodlands Association. Since then the Woodlands Association has preserved 22 parcels of forested open space (320 acres) and has constructed 18 miles of connecting interpretive and recreational trails surrounding 70% of the town's historic district. The Association's preservation efforts have attracted national attention and has set the standard for community land preservation in Oregon. Maps of Jacksonville’s extensive trail system are available at the city’s information center, various trail heads or by contacting the JWA at: Info@jvwoodlands.org or by mailing a request to: JWA, P.O. Box 1210, Jacksonville, Oregon.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Beekman Arboretum Clean-Up Day!
For photos of the event go to the Media Gallery.
Though there is some shade in many places, there are also many open areas, and when high temperatures get into the 90's or over 100, it will feel hot no matter how much shade you find.
And as always, stay on the trails to avoid poison oak -- a warning probably not necessary as its red leaves during late summer make it conspicuous.
