Steelhead Falls Trailhead Invasive Weed Removal
August 2 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Steelhead Falls Trail, along the Middle Deschutes River near Crooked River Ranch, is one of the most beloved spots in Central Oregon. The past several years, Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area (also known as FANs of the Deschutes Canyon Area) volunteers have removed cheatgrass and other invasive weeds while planting native bunchgrasses and shrubs near the trailhead.
This restoration work has greatly improved Steelhead Falls Trailhead habitat. However, invasive weeds, including Russian thistle and foxtail barley, are growing amongst the native plants now, and they need to be removed.
We will meet at the Steelhead Falls parking lot at 8:00 a.m. We hope you can help for one or two hours. Please wear outdoor work clothes, closed-toe shoes, and work gloves. Bring a weeding tool if you have one. We will have some extra tools available. Also, please bring some water and a snack. Thank you for helping to keep the trailhead looking great!
