Come join the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative and Lane County Parks on Saturday, June 22 from 10 a.m. to noon to remove invasive Scotch broom and small trees from the Three Mile Prairie Dunes County Park in Florence, OR.

The Three Mile Prairie Dunes site provides good habitat for dunes-adapted native plants and wildlife, but is threatened by invasive weeds and vegetation. It is located north of Florence Golf Links and west of Hwy 101 at Fred Meyer. It is a 15 minute walk from the northwest corner of the Fred Meyer parking lot to the work site over some sand and fairly level ground. This is a family event, so children and friendly dogs on leash are welcome.

Bring closed-toe shoes, work gloves, water, and snacks. Please bring shovels, hand saws, or loppers if you have them. If you don’t, ODRC will have a limited supply of tools you can borrow.

Directions: From the intersection of Hwys 126 and 101 in Florence, drive north 2.3 miles and turn west into the Fred Meyer parking lot at the Fred Meyer gas station. Drive past the gas pumps and go to the northwest corner of the parking lot towards the dunes in the back. Event leaders will meet you there.
