Volunteers Needed at Zumwalt Prairie Preserve
Saturday & Sunday, September 16th & 17th
The Nature Conservancy invites anyone interested in assisting conservation efforts on Zumwalt Prairie Preserve, located on the breaks of the Imnaha River in Northeast Oregon, to attend a volunteer work party Saturday and Sunday, September 16th & 17th. Zumwalt Prairie Preserve is a key part of the largest remaining native bunchgrass prairie in North America, harboring 12,000 acres of abundant prairie habitat, 15,000 acres of canyonlands and 12 miles of creeks with spawning habitat for endangered Snake River steelhead and inland redband trout. Zumwalt is also home to one of the largest concentrations of nesting raptors in North America. During this work party, volunteers will assist with a variety of tasks including fence repair, prescribed fire unit preparation, invasive species removal and facilities improvements. We’ll work a full day Saturday and a half day Sunday.
Participants need to bring appropriate clothing for any weather event and lunch and water for Saturday’s work. For those who wish to stay the night, Saturday night dinner and Sunday breakfast will be provided. You will need to bring a tent and sleeping bag.
