Fall River Streamside Habitat Workshop
September 3, 2019$65 – $75
Fall River Streamside Habitat Workshop – slinging dirt, logs, and plants
Join us in our effort to restore stream bank habitat on Fall River. We invite volunteers to learn about the importance of conserving stream-bank stability and native vegetation. This workshop is great for landowners and riverside users alike. After delivering a short presentation on proper techniques for habitat restoration, we will get our hands dirty with an on-site planting project.
Please contact Darek Staab firstname.lastname@example.org or Paul Burton email@example.com to confirm you will join us. We will meet at 9am on Oct. 18th – 15024 River Loop East, Bend, OR. ‘the metal house’ – which is located in the Fall River Estates, which is downstream of the hatchery. If you would like to carpool from Bend, we will be leaving at 8am, and meeting in front of the Trout Unlimited/ONDA office. Our first hour will be an orientation to riparian restoration, and the rest of the day we will have fun restoring a stream bank.
We will provide coffee and treats to get us going that morning, but do bring water and a lunch for the day. We will spend the day in the backyard of Nick and Sara’s place, who are anglers and renters, as well as stream stewards who will be joining us on the property. We will be moving some dirt and logs, planting about 80 plants on the site, and doing some fun touch up work with pine needles and rock to improve an impacted site next to the stream. Please bring boots to handle the dirt/mud, a trusty pair of work gloves, and clothing to fit the weather for the day. If you would like to carpool from Bend, just let me know.
