Nature Conservancy seeks volunteers at Juniper Hills Preserve


The Nature Conservancy invites anyone interested in maintaining Juniper Hills Preserve to participate in an overnight volunteer work party on the weekend of Saturday & Sunday, September 19 th & 20 th .

Juniper Hills Preserve is located east of Prineville on the Crooked River in Central Oregon and harbors ancient western junipers, an outstanding diversity of native bunchgrasses and colorful fossil formations.

Volunteers will primarily remove fence during this event. They can also help remove spring structures, to encourage natural water flow on the preserve.

Participants should bring sturdy water resistant boots for working in mucky, muddy areas by the springs, long-sleeved shirt and pants to wear while working, a daypack, raingear, hiking boots, a hat, sunscreen, one or two large water bottles (drinking water will be available on site), insect repellent, a flashlight and leather or rubber soled work gloves if you have them—if you don’t we will have gloves you can borrow. Bring several layers of clothing to be prepared for any type of Oregon weather.

Please note: if you are coming from Portland, there will be a carpool meeting at The Nature Conservancy office located at 821 SE 14 th Avenue (between Belmont and Morrison) on Friday, September 18 th at 3:00 p.m. for departure. Prior sign-up is required.

Registration for this work party is required. For more information or to register, please contact us at (503) 802-8100 or
