Marshall Pond Work Party

Are you are looking for an excuse to enjoy the Refuge one more time this season? Please join us for a beautification project at headquarters. We’ll be planting potted willows which will screen the Marshall pond from the trail and provide habitat for nesting songbirds, transplanting clumps of our native Great Basin rye grass, and planting perennial flowers around the nature center to keep our pollinators happy.

We can arrange a trip up to the Steens where the aspens will be in all their autumn glory.

We have the tools you will need and can provide housing for the first 7 folks that sign up; which you can do by contacting Alice Elshoff at 541 389-3543 or
