Spring Creek Planting Party

Roll up your sleeves and help the Deschutes Land Trust plant native trees and shrubs at Spring Creek, a private Land Trust protected property near the Metolius River. Get your hands dirty and have fun while improving key fish and wildlife habitat in the Metolius Basin.

The Land Trust and partners recently placed more logs in Spring Creek to slow water and create deeper pools to protect growing fish. Planting native trees and shrubs is the next step to restore Spring Creek, and will benefit not only fish, but native birds and wildlife that live along the creek's banks.

Rating: Work party with moderate difficulty, digging and lifting required.

What to Bring: Work gloves and shovel if you have them, sturdy hiking shoes, snacks/lunch, water. Dress for the weather.
