Jake Place Planting #1
May 2 @ 5:00 pm - May 5 @ 8:00 am
Welcome to year five of a seven-year project using large-scale plantings to restore beaver habitat along 4.5 miles of the South Fork Crooked River.
This trip is the first of two trips in 2019. On this trip, we will employ two strategies to plant cottonwood and willow “sticks” along the bank of the river: one involving pikes and hammers and another using pre-augured holes. We will also construct exclosure fencing around all of the plantings to protect them from deer, elk and beaver while the plants are becoming established. Volunteers can choose from various tasks to meet the planting goals.
Trip highlights include working in a beautiful and remote area offering plenty of opportunities to roam and explore. You can enjoy the satisfaction of participating in a large-scale, long term project where positive results can already be observed.
While some tasks will be physically challenging, this trip has such a wide variety of tasks of varying levels of intensity that there is surely something for everyone. No experience required.
