Easy WrkPrty—Amazon Creek—Saturday, February 25, 2023
Leader: Darko Sojak

Our 9-12 work party is a part of “Greater Amazon Shading Plan “project. Our goal is to plant and mulch trees from Fox Hollow to Snell. The stretch is about ½ mile long. Please meet 8:45 AM at Ridgeline Montessori school on West Amazon Parkway (it will be empty because it’s a Saturday). We will go back over the project, safety, and instructions. We’ll split into two equal groups and head north and south along the creek. The truck will be centrally located for mulch access. DETAILS: > Planting approximately (50) bare root trees (bitter cherry, choke cherry, white alder, and cascara) along the west bank of Amazon Creek in the approximate ½ mike stretch between Fox Hollow Road and Snell Street. > We’ll have a “planting tutorial” at 9:00 am (especially for those folks who didn’t attend the 1/21 event) and then team up/spread out to plant, mulch and water these new trees. > City P&OS personnel will bring all the tools and supplies needed. Volunteers should just dress for the weather and wear closed toed shoes. I suggest bringing your own sturdy gloves for best comfort.

Obsidians @ Eugene's Ridgeline:

The main concern of the Trail Crew is to lessen the impact on the environment that great numbers of people make.
—Appalachian Mountain Club, Trail Crew Leader

The Stewardship committee arranges projects with the City of Eugene Parks & Open Space Division. We do regular, monthly trips on the Ridgeline Trails and Spencer Butte, and we do litter pick up hikes along the Ridgeline Trails system.
