Clear Creek Planting
November 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - November 7, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Thanks to ONDA volunteers’ hard work and reliability, we have been able to expand our relationship with Malheur National Forest and help with a new restoration project on Clear Creek, a tributary of the Middle Fork of the John Day River providing critical habitat for steelhead and Chinook.
Volunteer on this trip and you will plant riparian trees and shrubs including willow and dogwood that were harvested from the Clarno Nursery in the spring. This newly restored stretch of Clear Creek will provide critical habitat for salmonids. No planting experience necessary.
Trip highlights include learning about a major restoration effort within the John Day River basin from knowledgeable Forest Service staff and exploring a beautiful area with a rich history.
Challenges include planting in rocky soils and potentially chilly fall weather.
