Join the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative and Oregon State University (OSU) on May 20th to remove invasive Scotch broom from the Oregon Dunes Day Use Area.
We will be working from 10 a.m. – noon with an optional field trip to the beach following the work session to see restoration efforts and snowy plover nesting areas. (Please note: Dogs are not allowed on or near the beach due to the nesting plovers. Dogs on a leash are allowed in the open sand dunes where the weed pulling will take place.)
Bring closed-toe shoes, water, snacks, and sunscreen. If you have shovels, hand saws, or loppers, please bring them as we will provide a limited supply of our own for people to borrow.
May 20th is OSU’s Day of Service where OSU alumni celebrate their global Beaver community by making changes in the community. You can register with the OSU Alumni Association for this event by using this link and receive a T-Shirt as a Thank You for volunteering. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/day-of-service-oregon-dunes-day-use-area-registration-632943911277
