Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah

The Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah's mission is to nurture and restore our connection to nature.

The Friends believe that people and nature are intertwined. We’re a self-funded non-profit of nearly 1,000 members and volunteers investing our time, talent, and money so people and nature can thrive together in the greater Mount Pisgah area.

We partner with Lane County Parks, Mount Pisgah Arboretum, The Nature Conservancy, Oregon State Parks, and other area landowners to enhance native habitat, improve trails, and involve volunteers in caring for the land.

Since our founding in 1989, the Friends of Buford Park & Mt. Pisgah have raised and invested millions of dollars in cash and volunteer contributions for habitat and trail improvements. We also explore Pisgah’s hidden treasures on guided tours and advocate for land protection regionally, such as the 1,300 acre Willamette Confluence Preserve next to Buford Park now owned by The Nature Conservancy.
