Oregon Dunes Weed Pull & Guided Hike

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Come celebrate Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative’s 100th Volunteer Event!!!

We need your help pulling Scotch broom at the Oregon Dunes Day Use Area, Saturday, May 11 starting at 10 AM. We will be pulling broom for approximately an hour, then there will be a guided hike from 11 to 12:15 led by local author and dunes interpretative guide, Dina Pavlis! Dina will lead us through the dunes to a ghost forest, exploring native plants along the way. She will also discuss the topography, geology and history of the Oregon dunes. Following the hike, we will have a Bring Your Own lunch with drinks and cookies provided by ODRC. This is a family event, so children and friendly dogs on leash are welcome. Please note, the hike is roughly 1/2 mile and requires the ability to hike in soft sand and there is some elevation gain.

Bring closed-toe shoes, work gloves, water, lunch, and sunscreen. If you have shovels, hand saws, or loppers, please bring them. If you don’t, ODRC has a limited supply of tools that you can borrow.
