Help Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative volunteers remove Scotch broom at Heceta Dunes on Saturday, October 26 from 10AM to Noon. Meet at the east end of Joshua Lane. It will be a short hike to where we will be working. We will be removing moderate-sized Scotch broom on flat slopes behind the houses on Joshua Lane. 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).
