Volunteer Event in the Columbia River Gorge
April 20, 2019
Coordinator: Mika Barrett
Join Friends of the Columbia Gorge stewardship volunteer coordinator (and SAC member!) Mika Barrett to combat the spread of invasive plants in the Gorge. SAC volunteers will contribute to a larger restoration project that was started in spring 2018 as a response to the Eagle Creek fire. We will spend the day removing the invasive plant, herb Robert to protect the neighboring wildflowers that are endemic to the Columbia Gorge.
Herb Robert poses a threat to the forest understory and to plant diversity. It is capable of growing under a full, closed canopy and especially likes disturbed soils. We are finding an abundance of this species on some of the Eagle Creek fire-affected trails.
No experience is necessary and all tools will be provided.
We are restricted to a limited number of volunteers due to working in a fire-closure area. As a result, we are unable to accommodate folks without prior registration.
The meeting location is currently TBD due to the fire-closure. Mika will be in contact with volunteers prior to the event.
