Volunteer Day and Project Tour for the Tumalo Falls Trail Restoration Project
Tumalo Falls, and access upstream along the creek, is one of the most popular recreation areas we have in Central Oregon. If we aren’t careful, visitors can easily damage the habitat they are there to enjoy. Tumalo Creek also has a diverse fishery, and we want to conserve the important vegetation along the creek and the important water quality and water shared downstream.
Join Trout Unlimited to create clear access points for recreation along the creek and protect sections of habitat for water quality and vegetation for fish and wildlife. Volunteers will help enhance access for a diversity of user groups, while discouraging excessive trails along the creek. We will gather at the interpretive signs near the parking lot for a quick orientation, and then take a short hike up to our first site together. We will receive a project tour, dive into some stewardship activities, and take a lunch break along the way. We will wrap up by 1pm at our work site. If you are interested in joining us, please register for the day to support our planning, as we have limited space for this volunteer project. Staff will follow up with directions and final details needed.
This project has received generous support from the Bend Sustainability Fund. The Bend Sustainability Fund invests in projects that protect, steward, and create sustainable recreational resources and outdoor experiences in Bend's backyard.
