Salmon River Erosion Control Project

Updated: Nov 10, 2020


The public is invited to volunteer on November 14, 2020 to work on a project protect the Salmon River and tributaries in the Otis area. Beginning at 8:00am volunteers and orgianizers will meet at the junction of North Panther Creek Rd and North Hillside Dr, rain or shine. There volunteers will receive instructions on where to place erosion control barriers and the materials you will need. Those helping are asked to please wear boots it will be muddy. Work gloves are also recommended to protect from straw/hay and blackberries.

Also needed are:

  • Hammers to pound stakes (regular claw hammer is ok, but three lbs sledge is much better)

  • Wire Snips to cut baling wire or baling string

  • Utility Knives (tough scissors might also work) to cut wattles, silt fencing, and zip ties

  • Yard Clippers - for blackberries & small branches

  • Pitchforks (garden leaf rakes and landscape rakes also will work) for spreading straw/hay

  • Pickup Trucks for moving straw/hay, wattles, and materials to individual work sites 

This event is a joint 350 Oregon Central Coast, Timber Unity, Lincoln County Soil and Water District, Lincoln County Solid Waste District and Lincoln County Emergency Management project. The goal is to protect the river from ash and sediment during the rainy season. This is a one day community event November 14, 2020 beginning at 8:00 am. All are welcome. Masks and social distancing are required. Together we can help our neighbors and keep the river clean of ash and other materials for wildlife.
