The Cape Horn Preserve is a stunning property acquired by the Friends of the Columbia Gorge Land Trust in 2020 and is adjacent to the Nancy Russell Overlook. Volunteers will continue with a variety of projects here started in August that improve the site for wildlife and future development guided by the Gorge Accessibility Project. The three tasks we'll focus on is continuing to remove old fencing (the last hurrah!), cutting out non-native shrubs, and cutting back Himalayan blackberry in key areas.
Difficulty level: Easy through moderate projects available. Work includes walking in a grassy field, bending, raking, cutting and moving plant material, using loppers and pruning saws, using a post remover to pull out metal t-posts, rolling wire.
Our project site is right next to where we will park- no hike necessary.
There is also a sheltered barn where I'll set up hot water and a place out of the elements to snack and warm up.
There is no official restroom on site.
