On Saturday, August 15th at 10 a.m., we will be cleaning up the iconic coke ovens along the Blackwater Rail Trail to Douglas Falls. These ovens have interpretive signs, benches, and a bike rack, but have become so overgrown with vegetation that threatens to cover them up and weaken the structural integrity of these historic structure.
We will get started by meeting at Friends of Blackwater’s office at the Buxton and Landstreet building on Douglas Road, just outside of Thomas. Friends of Blackwater will provide some basic tools and gloves, but please come prepared with whatever else you need to comfortably work outdoors.
To comply with Forest Service volunteer rules during COVID-19, we have to cap the number of volunteers at 10 this year. PLEASE RSVP HERE if you can attend!!
