With all this talk of the solar eclipse, the beauty of Mother Nature is on a lot of peoples’ minds. Luckily, if you’re in the mood, there are some opportunities this week to give back. Here’s a roundup of environmental volunteer events happening in the area. The Friends of Buford Park & Mount Pisgah group is holding a volunteer work party 8-11 am every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday through the summer at Mount Pisgah’s Native Plant Nursery, 34639 Frank Parrish Road. According to their website, you can help with “seasonal propagation and maintenance operations including planting, irrigation, weeding, harvesting …” For more info or to RSVP, contact volunteer@bufordpark.org or 541-344-8350. City of Eugene Parks and Open Space is hosting a “Pull and Paddle,” an event to pull aquatic weeds via canoe or kayak, from 8 am to noon Saturday, Aug. 19, at Delta Ponds (640 Goodpasture Island Road) and 8 am to noon Sunday, Aug. 20, at Golden Gardens (Golden Gardens Street and Jessen Drive). RSVP to Carrie at carrie.l.karl@ci.eugene.or.us or 541-682-4850. Canoes and paddles are provided, but you can also bring your own. The Nature Conservancy is also hosting a volunteer work party at Willow Creek Preserve, 87200 Rathbone Road, from 9 am to noon Saturday, Aug. 19. Volunteers will collect native wildflower seed for future prairie restoration. RSVP at nature.org/oregonworkparties. All of these events are FREE. — Meerah Powell

Downtown Springfield will burst to life in these dog days of summer with Tap & Taste, “Springfield’s premier food and drink celebration,” according to a press release. Willamalane Park and Recreation District is putting on the event and bringing local food and drink vendors to the scene. “It’s so much fun to see downtown Springfield come alive during Tap & Taste,” says Jana Weaver, Willamalane’s special events supervisor. “It’s a wonderful party and grown-up foodie event, but it’s also a perfect opportunity to celebrate and take pride in this wonderful place we live.” There will be live music to match the event, including local musicians Breakers Yard, TLS Journey and Nate Bosford. You can also enjoy plenty of local beers and ciders for sale, plus non-alcoholic tea, juice and kombucha. Willamalane is still seeking volunteers to help with the event — contact Mavis Sanchez at 541-736-4039 to sign up.

Tap & Taste is 5 to 10 pm, Saturday, Aug. 19, at Fifth and A streets in Springfield. For tickets and info, go to willamalane.org or call 541-736-4544. $12 advance, $15 at the door.  — Kelly Kenoyer

It’s been talked about for months and months and now it’s finally here — the total solar eclipse! Hopefully, if you’re looking to camp, you’ve made plans way in advance since most everything in the zone of totality — on our side of the Cascades, that’s the chunk of land from Brownsville to McMinnville — has been booked up for months. If you’re staying in town, Eugene’s still not a bad place to be as we’ll be experiencing about 99 percent totality, not safe enough to view with bare eyes, but do-able with eclipse viewers. If you’ll be in the Eugene area, here are a few events to check out on eclipse day — Monday, Aug. 21. Head to the YMCA Field, at 19th and Patterson, at 9:30 am for a FREE Solar Eclipse Viewing Party. Oregon Eye Consultants will be on-site with safety-approved glasses available for free. There will also be music and refreshments. Another Eugene option is the Solar Eclipse Watch Party put on by EugFun! at Skinner Butte. There will be shuttle buses from Campbell Community Center (155 High Street) to the top of the butte every 10 minutes starting at 8:30 am. You can also walk up the butte, but no cars are allowed. There will be a limited number of eclipse glasses available there, as well. The Springfield Public Library (225 Fifth Street) is also holding an eclipse-viewing event from 9-11 am. They will also be providing NASA-approved eclipse viewers and kid-friendly activities. That event is also FREE. If you’re looking to have your own viewing party wherever you are in town, Eugene’s Downtown Public Library is giving out free eclipse glasses while supplies last.
