Canceled: South Fork Crooked Riparian Planting
April 30, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - May 3, 2020 @ 8:00 am
Join us on this ongoing project using large-scale plantings to restore beaver habitat along 4.5 miles of the South Fork Crooked River.
On this trip, we will employ our new favorite strategy for planting cottonwood and willow “sticks” along the bank of the river: using four-foot-deep 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 south levels of intensity that there is surely something for everyone. No experience required.
