Attention all Sisters Trails Alliance Volunteers!
We have a trail workday planned for Saturday, Nov. 19 starting at 9 am. We will gather at the Sisters Ranger District office parking area and carpool up to the new Whychus Creek Overlook parking area.
If we have enough volunteers we will split into two groups:
This will be the first priority!
Its the perfect time to plant wildflowers and grasses on Whychus Overlook. Many areas need restoration and a little help.
Come join us Saturday Nov 19th at 9am at the Overlook parking lot and plant native seeds of Idaho fescue, squirreltail, blue flax, western yarrow, and phacelia. For those looking for an easy morning, work can be done trail side with a seeder and raking. For those ready for more strenuous work, seeding needs to be done on the interior decommissioned roadbeds which have been covered with slash. If time and energy permit, its also a good time to transplant. Come learn more about native plant restoration you can use in your own backyard. Leader- Maret Pajutee, retired USFS ecologist.

If we have enough volunteers we will split into two groups and do needed tread work on the Whychus Draw Trail and Whychus Creek Trail. Please wear sturdy boots and protective clothing, and bring water, snacks, lunch. This group will be lead by Gary Guttormsen.
The STA tool trailer will be up there and we will provide all necessary tools and hard hats!
We look forward to seeing many of you!
