The staff of your Oregon State Parks in the western Columbia River Gorge are excited to host this year's Earth Day volunteer event at Rooster Rock State Park in partnership with SOLVE! Our goal this year is to fill in some of the gaps in vegetation by planting native fir trees and mulching around them to prevent competition. While we're at it, we'll also spread mulch around young trees that have been planted in previous years so that they have the best chance of survival. Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is committed to ensuring that Oregon's outdoor recreational spaces are well taken care of for the enjoyment and education of current and future generations and we invite all volunteers to join us in this great effort!
Earth Day is important to everyone, so park staff have made sure that there are activities for all ages of volunteers. This event is family and dog friendly! Dogs must be kept on a leash and we ask that folks with furry companions bring bags to pick up your pup's waste. Please check the weather report before leaving the house and dress for the weather, but long pants and sturdy shoes are recommended, regardless of the forecast. There are flush restrooms and potable water on-site, so water bottles can be filled.
Rooster Rock State Park is in Corbett, OR, along the Columbia River. Get on I-84 (east if you're coming from the Portland area, west if you're coming from the Cascade Locks area) and take exit 25 for Rooster Rock. There will be a day use booth at the entrance, but volunteers are NOT required to buy a day use pass that day. We will be meeting in front of the office building to get volunteers registered and talk about safety and the history of Earth Day.
Thank you for your commitment to Earth Day and to Oregon State Parks!
