Umpqua Dunes Scotch Broom Removal

August 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative at the John Dellenback Dunes Trailhead to remove Scotch broom at the Umpqua Dunes on Saturday, August 24 from 10 a.m. to noon. Volunteers are needed to continue our efforts to remove invasive Scotch broom from one of our “Protect the Best” sites. It is approximately 0.4 miles uphill on the trail to the worksite. This is a family event, so children and friendly dogs on leash are welcome.

Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes for hiking on the sand and bring work gloves, water, snacks, and sunscreen. 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. Day use fees are waived for volunteers at this event.
