Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge

In Oregon, we have the pleasure of having so many different places to experience nature. Near Salem, the Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge is just another one to add to the list. It’s great for birders who want to catch a glimpse of the Canada Goose and other migratory birds. It’s also a somewhat easy and moderate area to hike. So, families or others who like to stop and smell the…wildflowers may also enjoy it. At BST Realty LLC, we love introducing our clients to all the many wonders that Oregon has to offer.

It makes sense that a lot of people choose their home in Oregon. In the Willamette Valley, there are so many perks and beautiful places to visit. You have the coast that is just over the mountain ridge or the temperate rain forest. Not only that but the wetland areas that old oak trees inhabit. Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge has more of a plains feel with wetlands and deciduous trees mixed in. If you’re new to the wildlife scene, then that’s fine. It also has educational and interpretative signs to help you explore the environment even more. You’ll also learn that a refuge is a place to quietly observe the wildlife rather than be front and center. It’s a place to just be. And, ways of giving back and supporting the wildlife refuge.

At BST Realty LLC, we love supporting our community and also appreciate all that Oregon has to offer. That also comes to all the different homes that are out there. Our agents are experts of the Willamette Valley and beyond. Each agent offers a special and unique perspective to help their clients get to where they want to be. However you may be starting the journey, we are here to help you at every point. Even if it means doing a couple of switchbacks uphill to get to that great view you’ve been wanting and dreaming about. Give us a call, and let’s start this journey together!
