Gold Beach volunteer event rescheduled for April 28

Thursday, April 5, 2018

GOLD BEACH, Ore – ODFW rescheduled this weekend’s Potato Patch Meadow restoration work party for Saturday, April 28 due to predicted heavy rainstorms and unsafe conditions.

Those who can volunteer on April 28 should meet at 9 a.m. at the south end of Lobster Creek Bridge over the Rogue River (Forest Service Road 3310). Check a map of the meeting location, which is a 20 minute drive from Gold Beach.

Lunch is provided. Contact Bree Furfey with any questions at or 541-247-7605 ext. 227.

Volunteers will remove smaller conifer trees and saplings that are encroaching on grassland habitat and reducing quality habitat for Roosevelt elk, black-tailed deer and upland game birds. Creating slash piles will also encourage grouse nesting habitat and improve meadow habitat.

People with experience and training using chainsaws or people who can bring hand tools such as loppers and weed whackers are encouraged to attend.
