Lend a hand with The Nature Conservancy in Southwest Oregon near Central Point.
Agate Desert is a spring wildflower haven and home to two federally listed endangered plants, Cook’s desert parsley and large-flowered meadowfoam, as well as threatened vernal pool fairy shrimp. The 54 acre preserve protects an excellent example of Rogue Valley mounded prairie-vernal pool habitat. Restoration work here has included multiple prescribed burns followed by native seeding to restore native bunchgrasses and flowers.
Volunteers will remove invasive wild oats and other weeds during this event. We’ll also observe the results of the recent 2017 prescribed burn and seeding. Children are welcome to help out.
