Calling all Dunes Volunteers! Come join the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative and Lane County Parks on Saturday, December 2 to remove invasive Scotch broom and small trees from the Three Mile Prairie County Park in Florence, OR. This event will take place from 10 a.m. to Noon. The Three Mile Prairie site provides good habitat for dunes-adapted native plants and wildlife, but is threatened by invasive weeds and vegetation. Three Mile Prairie County Park is located just 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.
