Volunteers Needed at Cascade Head Preserve

Posted by The Oregon Coast / August 28, 2014

Saturday, September 20th    

The Nature Conservancy invites anyone interested in preserving Cascade Head Preserve to participate in a volunteer work party taking place on Saturday, September 20th.  Located near Lincoln City, Cascade Head is a coastal promontory overlooking the Pacific Ocean that provides critical habitat for native prairie grasses, rare wildflowers, the threatened Oregon Silverspot butterfly and the Cascade Head catchfly.  We will be removing invasive blackberry at this work party. The work party includes a four to five-mile roundtrip hike with elevation gain and may require volunteers to hike off trail and stand on uneven ground while working.  Please bring hiking shoes, a daypack, lunch and snacks, a full water bottle, layers of clothing to be prepared for any weather–including raingear and a hat and sunscreen.  Also bring gloves, if you have them–if not, we have gloves for you to borrow.

Registration is required.  For more information or to register, please contact (503) 802-8100, orvolunteers@tnc.org or the alternate contact; Debbie Pickering at (541) 994-5564.
