Lands were acquired between 1946 and 1982 by purchase and by gifts from Douglas County and Ian McLeod. Save the Myrtle Woods, Inc. contributed to the purchase of several tracts. Mostly located between the highway and the Umpqua River, they were acquired to preserve the fine stands of myrtle trees, maples and other native species.
