Join Southern Oregon Land Conservancy (SOLC) for our first official work party and Stewardship Day at the Rogue River Preserve on Saturday, May 13th from 9:30am to noon! Throughout the year, rain or shine, SOLC holds volunteer work parties on conserved lands. From pulling invasive weeds or planting native plants to clearing a trail, volunteering at a work party is an opportunity to get out on the land and help get some important and much appreciated work done.
At the Preserve we’ll focus on removing Scotch broom with our handy new weed wrenches. After the satisfying work of removing this noxious plant, we’ll sit down by the river and eat lunch together.
The Southern Oregon Land Conservancy recently raised enough money to purchase and preserve 352-acres along the Rogue River. SOLC is a regional conservation organization serving Jackson and Josephine counties. Founded in 1978, they work cooperatively with landowners, partners, and communities to protect high-priority lands in the Rogue Basin for current and future generations. In 35 years, the organization has protected 10,000 acres of this region’s working farms and ranches, wildlife habitats, and some beautiful natural areas.
On Stewardship Day, May 13th, bring a bag lunch, your favorite gloves and be ready to have some fun. We’ll provide snacks, drinks, tools, and gloves for those who don’t have their own. For more details and to register go to landconserve.org or give us a call at 541-482-3069.
