Join the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative work party to remove Scotch Broom on Saturday, June 26th from 10AM-Noon at the North Jetty of the Siuslaw River Park. We will be working along the road at the end of North Jetty Road.
We can have a maximum of 20 people who can attend so it is important for you to email ODRC Outreach Coordinator, Brian Saunders at email@example.com if you plan on attending. Also let him know how many people are in your group. After you respond to Brian, he will email you the County’s liability form. Please sign and bring it with you to the work party. If you are bringing children, let him know as there is a separate release form for children.
Please note that we will have to stay at least 6 feet apart while working and wear face coverings. Once we start working, the face coverings wont be necessary as long as we stay 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 and shovels to remove the sand around the stems. A reciprocating saw will work too. Loppers 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, shovels and washable gloves if needed.
Directions: From Highway 101 in Florence, turn west on 35th Street. Turn right onto Rhododendron Drive, turn left on North Jetty Road. Stay on North Jetty Road all the way until the end of the road. There is a gravel parking lot at the end of the road.
