Salmon River Erosion Control Project in the Echo Mountain Fire Complex
Please join us on November 15, 2020 as we work to protect the Salmon River and tributaries in the Otis area. Beginning at 8:00am we will meet at the junction of North Panther Creek Rd and North Hillside Dr, rain or shine. There you will receive instructions on where to place erosion control barriers and the materials you will need. Please wear boots it will be muddy. Work gloves are also recommended to protect from straw/hay and blackberries.
We also need:
- Hammers to pound stakes (regular claw hammer is ok, but three lbs sledge is much better)
- Wire Snips to cut baling wire or baling string
- Utility Knives (tough scissors might also work) to cut wattles, silt fencing, and zip ties
- Yard Clippers – for blackberries & small branches
- Pitchforks (garden leaf rakes and landscape rakes also will work) for spreading straw/hay
- Pickup Trucks for moving straw/hay, wattles, and materials to individual work sites
This event is a joint 350 Oregon Central Coast, Timber Unity, Lincoln County Soil and Water District, Lincoln County Solid Waste District and Lincoln County Emergency Management project. Our goal is to protect the river from ash and sediment during the rainy season. This is a one day community event November 15, 2020 beginning at 8:00 am. All are welcome. Masks and social distancing are required. Together we can help our neighbors and keep the river clean of ash and other materials for wildlife.
Sign in at the staging area at the junction of North Panther Creek Rd and North Hillside Dr.
