Help Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative volunteers remove Scotch broom at Heceta Dunes on Saturday, June 15 from 10AM to Noon. 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 work on the flat near the entrance out to the tree island removing mostly small broom plants from where we have worked in the past. The hike is on relatively level ground. 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. Friendly dogs on a leash are welcome.
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).
