Join the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative work party to remove Scotch broom on Saturday, July 11 from 10AM to Noon at the North Jetty of the Siuslaw River. It is a short walk to where we will be working.

There is a maximum of 20 people who can attend. So it is important for you to email Brian Saunders, ODRC staff person, at brian@eugenecascadescoast.org if you plan to attend and let him know how many people are in your group. After you respond, Brian will email you the county’s release of liability form. Please sign and bring it with you to the work party. If you are bringing children, let him know. There is a separate release form for children.

Please Note: We will need to stay at least 6 feet apart while working and wear face coverings in the parking area. Once we are away from the parking area, the face coverings won’t be necessary as long as we stay at least 6 feet apart.

Bring: If at all possible, bring your own tools and gloves. The best tools for this work party will be hand saws or a reciprocating saw. Loppers and shovels will work for the smaller broom plants. A hat, long pants, and sturdy, closed-toe boots or shoes are recommended. Bring your own water and hand sanitizer.

If you don’t have tools or gloves, let Brian know. ODRC has a few hand saws, weed wrenches, loppers, and shovels, and washable gloves of various sizes. The tools are wiped down with Lysol wipes after they were last used. Please don’t share tools.

Directions: From Hwy. 101 in Florence, turn west on 35th St., turn right on Rhododendron Drive, turn left on North Jetty Rd., stay on North Jetty Rd. all the way to the end. There is a gravel parking lot at the end of the road.
