The Slabin Collection of West Eugene Wetlands Photographs

In the spring of 2001, Dr. Uladzimir Slabin took approximately 5000 photographs covering much of the West Eugene Wetlands. The links below provide access to this collection of pictures.

To take these pictures, Dr. Slabin walked along "paths" through the various wetlands sites, stopping to take pictures about every 30 feet. From each "Viewpoint" he took a picture facing in the direction he was walking, a picture behind him in the opposite direction, and often a third picture either to the right or to the left of his path. At some Viewpoints he took additional pictures, especially if there was any wildlife present.

Altogether Dr. Slabin walked along 51 paths through the Wetlands. Rough locations are described below. The links take you to the first of each series of pictures. Each series consists of 10 - 200 pictures. There are additional links from each picture to each of the others in the series. The pictures are show in a medium size; a larger image is accessed by clicking the pictures. There is also a link to a page showing thumbnails of all the pictures in a series on a single web page. These can take several minutes to download.
