A quick note to let you know about two opportunities available to Oregon Backcountry Hunters & Anglers members to participate in public lands conservation, maintenance and restoration projects:
White River Wildlife Area Convservation Project:
On April 7, 2012 The Traditional Archers of Oregon is sponsoring a conservation project at the White River Wildlife Area near Tygh Valley. There are several projects that need support. Backcountry Hunters & Anglers members are welcome and invited to participate in the work project and the archery shoot on the following day. On April 8 there will be a traditional archery golf shoot. Primitive camping sites are available on April 6, 7 and 8 for those interested in attending and participating in either the conservation project and/or the golf shoot. For more information on the weekends activities please see:http://www.taoregon.com/gsflyer.html
Soda Mountain Wilderness Restoration & Maintenance Project:
From July 13 to 15, 2012 theCascade-Siskiyou National Monument staff will be leading a three (3) day, two (2) night volunteer work trip into the Soda Mountain Wilderness area within the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument to clear former roads now converted to trails of downed trees and brush. Oregon chapter members Ian Reid and Mike Beagle have suggested that this will be a great project for interested OrBHA members.
