The Nature Conservancy invites anyone interested in preserving Cascade Head Preserve to participate in a volunteer work party taking place on Saturday, July 20th. Located just north of 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.
During this work party we will be removing Canada thistle from the Pinnacle, an area of the preserve that is closed to the public. The work party includes a four to five-mile round-trip 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 at nature.org/oregonworkparties. Questions? Contact (503) 802-8100, firstname.lastname@example.org or the alternate contact; Debbie Pickering at (541) 994-5564.
