Broom Busters: 6 Days of Stewardship!
South Beach State Park
South Beach State Park is seeking volunteers near and far to help take back our natural landscape! The invasive scotch broom plant is in bloom from April to June, which is the perfect time for attacking it.
We are focusing on cutting “Broom in Bloom” in order to eradicate scotch broom for the benefit of our community and future generations. Even one person can make a huge difference!
Join us for six outings aimed at taking back our park. Every Saturday in May, and the first Saturday in June, we will be meeting at the South Beach Day-Use parking area. Volunteers will be trained in correct methods for removing scotch broom, showed where the broom is trying to take over, and be provided with small hand tools and gloves, but volunteers are encouraged to bring hand saws, loppers, and gloves if they have them. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
Event Times: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

This event is provided in part by the Stewardship Division and Natural Resources Department within Oregon State Parks. This is the third year South Beach State Park has provided a “Broom Busters” event, and the event has expanded from the previous years from a one-day event to six days. Our goal with this change was to give more flexibility for volunteers within the community to be able to come out and participate, as well as provide more awareness about scotch broom. With the help of our visitors, neighbors, and partners, we can take back our native landscape, and enhance our legacy for future community leaders! For more information, please contact:
