Help Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative volunteers remove Scotch broom at Heceta Dunes on Saturday, June 1 from 10AM to 1PM. Meet at the east end of Joshua Lane. If you need to leave early or want to work later, you are welcome to do so. We will be removing Scotch broom near native grasses on the eastern sand sheet. The hike out to the site is about 30 minutes and we cross a couple of dunes. Heceta Dunes is one of the “Protect the Best” sites due to the open sand sheets and native grasses.
BRING: shovels or spades, loppers, tree saws, gloves, a sweatshirt or jacket, and drinking water. Sturdy closed-toe shoes, long pants, and a hat are recommended.
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. (Please do not block driveways, mail boxes or fire hydrants).
