Come join local volunteers and members of the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative to cut and pull Scotch broom on Saturday, April 28. A short hike (1.5 miles) over mostly level terrain (but does include one large dune) will take you out to view native plants and grasses (a botanist will be in attendance to point out these important natives that the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative with your help is working to save by removing sand-stabilizing and habitat-covering Scotch broom, gorse and European beachgrass).
Meet at the EAST end of Joshua Lane (Florence, Oregon) at 10:00 AM. We will work for 2 hours, but you may leave early if you like. A short lunch will follow and those interested may stay for lunch (bring your own) and then work for another 1 to 2 hours to remove more plants.
If the weather is questionable that day, **CHECK BACK HERE** on day of event to confirm we are moving forward.
BRING: Loppers, shovels, tree saws, gloves. Long pants and closed-toe shoes recommended as are sunscreen and water (extra water if it is hot). Friendly dogs welcome on leash.
Parking available on Joshua Lane (please do not block private driveways or fire hydrants).
Directions: Highway 101 NORTH from Florence. Turn LEFT on Heceta Beach Road. Turn RIGHT on 4th Avenue. Turn RIGHT on Joshua Lane…drive to the east end of Joshua for parking.
