Conservation Alliance - Bend Backyard Collective

FootZone is a proud member of the Conservation Alliance and next Tuesday (Sept. 28th) is the Bend Backyard Collective. It's a work party out in Skyline Forest followed by lunch at Shevlin Park.

If you want to join in, please email asap and we'll make sure they have lunch for you. Should be a good time!

Here's the schedule

8:30am: meet at Shevlin Park (south side of Shevlin Park Road)
9-12:30: work party at Skyline Forest
1pm: lunch is served at Aspen Meadow, Shevlin Park
1-2pm: Conservation Alliance Grantee Fair/raffle/announcements

What to bring: Sturdy footwear, long pants, raingear, sunscreen, warm layers, work gloves, loppers or hand saw (if you have them), water.

FootZone (via the Dirty Half, supported by the local running community) has raised $100,000 for the Deschutes Land Trust as they try to create a community forest on much of the forest between Bend and Sisters. This is a good opportunity to get out there and see all of the potential. h
