In 2012 the Land Trust, in partnership with the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council and Deschutes National Forest, completed a multi-year restoration of Whychus Creek and its surrounding meadow at Camp Polk Meadow Preserve. Seven years later, Whychus Creek is making itself at home and the once dry meadow is springing back to life. Walk the restored meadow and see the robust streamside vegetation that has taken root, the paths the creek has chosen to follow, and how the restoration project has improved habitat for fish and wildlife. Hike Rating: This is a moderate 2-mile hike off-trail and through grassy meadows. What to Bring: Snacks, water, sturdy hiking shoes. Dress for the weather.

Organizer

OCEAN

OCEAN delivers conservation based technical training, professional development, education, assistance, and networking opportunities to 150+ conservation district employees in Oregon. CONNECT is OCEAN's main endeavor, and provides attendees with two full days of technical training built around the feedback received from the attendees themselves. It is well attended and provides a depth of training that was previously unavailable to district employees on a statewide scale. OCEAN is planning to expand to deliver regional trainings that address topics specific to its basin members in the future.  For more information about OCEAN go to: oceanconnect.org.
