Come join local volunteers and members of the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative to cut and pull Scotch broom on Saturday, August 18.
Afterwards, those interested are invited to take a short hike (1.5 miles) over mostly level terrain (but does include one large dune) to view native plants and grasses. A botanist will be in attendance to point out these important natives that the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative along 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 until 1:00 PM. You may leave early if you like and are not required to join in the hike unless you wish to do so. You will have time for a lunch break, so bring a lunch or snack along with plenty of water.
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.
