Event description
Join the Deschutes Land Trust and the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council for a restoration tour of Rimrock Ranch.

About this event

Join staff and restoration specialists from the Land Trust and the Watershed Council to see the restoration work up close and in person. Bulldozers, excavators, and dump trucks will be moving soil and placing trees in preparation for switching Whychus Creek back to a natural system of stream channels. After the tour, there will also be a chance to attend a lunch on site where the Deschutes Land Trust and Upper Deschutes Watershed Council will recognize Crestline Construction for their help in containing the Grandview fire. Crestline Construction used their bulldozers, excavators, and water trucks that were already onsite for the restoration project to build fire lines and offer other assistance to the agencies working to contain the fire. Officials at Oregon Department of Forestry have said support from Crestline Construction was a critical component to helping contain the southern flank of the fire.

Note: Rimrock Ranch is 45-1 hour from Bend. Please be prepared for hiking on dirt roads and off-trail into the meadow next to the creek. Terrain will be uneven at times. We recommend wearing long pants and hiking boots. Bring water, snacks, and sun protection.

Per Oregon Health Authority (OHA) guidelines, we strongly recommend that individuals who are unvaccinated or who are at higher risk for COVID-19 continue to wear a face covering in crowded areas and in large gatherings of individuals, and maintain physical distancing.
