Join Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative volunteers in removing Scotch broom at Heceta Dunes on Saturday, August 10 from 10AM to Noon. We will be meeting at the east end of Joshua Lane. We will be hiking out past the tree island and pond to remove mature Scotch broom on open sand dunes. If you need to leave early or want to work later, you are welcome to do so. We want to remove Scotch broom and gorse from Heceta Dunes, because it is one of the “Protect the Best” sites due to its open sand sheets and native grasses.
BRING: shovels or spades, loppers, tree saws, gloves, and drinking water. Sturdy closed-toe shoes, long pants, and a hat are recommended. Friendly dogs on a leash are welcome. A limited number of tools will be available to borrow if you need them.
DIRECTIONS: From Florence, take Highway 101 NORTH. Turn LEFT on Heceta Beach Road. Turn RIGHT on 4th Avenue. Turn RIGHT on Joshua Lane…drive to the east end of Joshua Lane for parking (Please do not block driveways, mail boxes or fire hydrants).
