Harnish Wayside Park and Interpretive Center is located along Little Butte Creek at the intersection of Highway 62 and South Royal Avenue / Nick Young Road and is owned and operated by the City of Eagle Point. http://www.cityofeaglepoint.org/index.aspx?NID=233

The Interpretive Center offers a historical mural view of the growth of Eagle Point and information rooms. An Area Attractions room provides directions and offers information about Eagle Point and the Upper Rogue portion of Jackson County. The interpretive center is open year round, Friday Saturday and Sunday. Hours of operation in summer (Memorial Day to Labor Day) - Monday - Thursday 10 am until 4 pm and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 10:00 am until 8:00 pm.

The Little Butte Creek room speaks to the importance of Little Butte Creek in the area ecosystem. From the natural riparian environment of the creek to the fish and animal life that call the creek home, Little Butte Creek is both a feature in the natural setting of Eagle Point and important to the region’s natural environment. Portions of Little Butte Creek are also combined with other water from the Rogue River to be used as drinking water for thousands of residents in the region. The Robert Duff Water Treatment Plant, run by the Medford Water Commission, processes Little Butte Creek water and other Rogue River water during the spring, summer, and early fall each year for our collective municipal water uses. The Little Butte Creek Monitoring Station, located in the park measures water quality and quantity with real time updates every 15 minutes.

Wayside Park has turf and picnic areas next to the creek with wildlife, natural riparian settings, picnic tables, benches, grills, and a pet area.

SOURCES

Water samples are collected by Rogue Riverkeeper volunteers and our Water Quality intern tests them in our lab which meets the OR Dept. of Environmental Quality data standards. Results are then posted to this page so you will know when it is safe (or unsafe) to swim!

Oregon state criteria for whether a water sample meets the water quality standard for contact is an E. coli result of 406 MPN/100mL per sample or less. Water samples are collected, then sealed and incubated over a 24-hour period at 35+/- degrees Celsius. The results are considered valid for 7 days.
Results based on the Oregon water quality criteria of 406 MPN/100mL are organized as follows:
GREEN = a single sample is below the Oregon water quality criteria for water contact
YELLOW = a single sample is at Oregon water quality criteria, nearing unsafe water contact. Caution should be taken when recreating in sites marked yellow.
RED = a single sample exceeds the Oregon water quality criteria.. People and pets should not be recreating in sites labeled red as bacteria levels are considered unsafe for human contact.
GREY = a site with no current data available.
SPECIAL STATUS = a toxic algae bloom was observed. Some species of blue-green algae can be toxic and may cause illness in people, pets and other animals if accidentally consumed.
Always use your best judgement when recreating in or near waterways. Pay attention to odd smells, colors, water quality, etc and report anything that looks out of the ordinary.
Be safe, have fun, and thank you for protecting the Rogue!
