A Few Restoration Activities to get involved in…

Gilbert Creek, Grants Pass, OR
Hello fish heads,
I hope that everyone is getting off to a good new year.  I wanted to let you know about upcoming opportunities for restoration plantings on a few small streams in our area.

Gilbert Creek Park (Grants Pass):

Jan 27   9:00 – 2:00 pm:  Prep, willow cutting

Feb 3   8:30/9:00 – 2:00 pm:  Planting (some high school kids will hopefully be joining us).


Blue Heron Park (Phoenix) :

Feb 6   Noon-3:00 pm:  With Phoenix High School.  We would gladly take 2-4 volunteers here in the morning to help with willow cuttings for the kids.


Whetstone Planting (Denman Wildlife Area, ODFW Office-Central Point):

Feb 9 – 9:00 am – early afternoon Willows cutting and planting, some brushwhacking, re-fencing trees to protect against the beaver, prep for irrigation

Feb 23 – 9:00 am – early afternoon –  Trees and irrigation laying


Thompson Creek (Selma) with Oregon Stewardship:

Feb 16 – If a few volunteers would like to join here, that would be great. Please let me know beforehand. Otherwise, Jim Hutchins will have most of this taken care of, but I’ll be joining him.
