Memaloose Ridge, OR

Join Friends Land Trust Stewardship Coordinator Sara Woods at Memaloose Ridge to begin renaturing the land.

Friends Land Trust is deconstructing a house to restore the land prior to transferring the preserve to the U.S. Forest Service. Contractors have been working to demo the house on site as the first step to renaturing the land. Volunteers will help pick up  trash left behind from the house demo and will rake and reseed the site with native grasses and forbs. No experience is necessary and all tools will be provided.

Difficulty level: Picking up trash, raking, spreading plant seeds.

Hazards include: Walking on uneven terrain and working around sharp objects (nails, staples, etc.).

We appreciate our volunteers! As a thank you, volunteers are gifted with a free Friends of the Columbia Gorge tech-tee after completing 3 stewardship work parties.

  • Lunch and plenty of water
  • Boots or close toe shoes
  • Extra layers of clothing in case of wet or cold weather
