Here is an opportunity to help out with replanting vegetation along Jackson Creek. The Middle Rogue Steelheaders club will be out doing that this Saturday morning and is still looking for some volunteers. I can’t make it but thought I would forward this to any Medford Rotarians who are willing and able to step up this weekend. Below is the request from the Middle Rogue Steelheaders club:
REQUEST FOR HELP WITH UPCOMING RIPARIAN PLANTING:
We had a signup for this planting at the general meeting in October but can use some
additional members to help plant approximately 150 trees and shrubs this coming weekend.
We will be in our own group, separated from other planting groups but still need to wear
masks and maintain distancing as much as possible.
