E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area

The Volunteer Host Program

Host Site #1
Volunteer working with an ODFW biologist.

The E. E Wilson Wildlife area is located 10 miles north of Corvallis on Hwy 99W in the central portion of the Willamette Valley of Western Oregon. It encompasses 1,683 acres of brush-grassland habitat, mature oak stands and several restored wetlands. It has a rich local history, serving as the home of the Kalapuya Indians, as the site of the small town of Wells, and later as the site of Camp Adair Army training center.

The E. E. Wilson Wildlife Area was established in 1950 as an upland game bird propagation facility where ring-necked pheasants, red-legged partridge and Sichuan pheasants were raised until 1997. This area now provides public recreation for hunting, fishing, birdwatching, hiking, dog training, berry picking, and sightseeing. The public viewing area draws about 15,000 visitors a year. There are several seasonal ponds and one permanent one that provides fishing.

Volunteer hosts have been a valuable and committed resource to the E. E. Wildlife Area. Three host sites are available which require the following:

Job Description: Sites 1 and 2 duties will involve assisting with the care of the show birds and pens, conducting tours, assisting with area hunts, grounds keeping, assisting with area fishing program, greeting the public, and assisting with maintenance projects.

Depending on skills, there could be some farming projects, and equipment operation. Site 3 will include some of the above, but will also assist with other jobs and projects around the region.
