Volunteers needed for work party at Thompson Creek

On November 19th, Tualatin Valley Trout Unlimited will be participating in a work party with the North Coast Land Conservancy at Thompson Creek in Seaside, Oregon. We will be supporting the local hydrologists (the Beaver population) by planting willow starts to provide the beavers with food and building materials. The starts will already be cut, so our tasks will be to auger holes and plant the cuttings. This goes really quickly and makes a very visible impression. (see blogsite: )
You should wear work clothes and bring a lunch and raingear. Waders or hip boots will help to plant close to the water line. We will meet at the Sunset Fred Meyer, 22075 NW Imbrie Dr., Hillsboro, Oregon and carpool/caravan from there to the worksite. Meet by the can return area. We will leave by 8:15 am and will arrive at the work site around 9:45 or 10 am.  Let me know if anyone wants to meet at Seaside. Please e mail me( to let me know if you are coming as we would like to have an idea of how many people will be attending.
I hope you can all make it. It should be fun.
