What's Your 150?

Tell us how you’ll celebrate Eugene@150

Eugene has given us an awesome place to live for 150 years – what do you want to give back to Eugene? Maybe it’s:


  • collecting 150 pounds of food for a local food bank;
  • planting 150 trees in a neighborhood;
  • listing or photographing your 150 favorite things about Eugene;
  • getting 150 people to dance the hokey-pokey in Kesey Square; or
  • building 150 bird houses.

We are inviting employees, community groups, neighborhoods, churches, businesses, artists, schools, clubs, and anyone else to get creative and have fun! Think of your 150 – invite others to join you – and then share what you did.


Post your ideas on our Facebookpage by e-mail them to Eugene150@ci.eugene.or.us.
