Annie's Cabin Groundtruthing Blitz Saturday, June 2nd
29 May 2007 15:38 GMT
The Decision Notice for the Annie's Cabin Timber Sale is scheduled to be released in late May or early June. This Bureau of Land Management (BLM) timber sale threatens to log approximately 500 acres around the Molalla River Shared-Trail System used for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Recent groundtruthing expeditions have discovered red tree vole nests, Oregon slender salamanders, and other types of nests. Bark needs your help to groundtruth the entire sale to ensure every acre is covered.
Please RSVP by May 31st with Joseph at firstname.lastname@example.org so teams and ground-truthing assignments can be created ahead of time. Please let us know if you can drive, your vehicle clearance and number of people with you. No previous groundtruthing experience necessary. A quick training will be held before we split up to groundtruth.
We will be meeting at the Daily Grind (4026 SE Hawthorne Blvd) at 8:50am. Carpools will be leaving no later than 9:15am. We plan to try to get people back to Portland by 5pm. For people outside of Portland, we plan to meet at the Hardy Creek Trailhead at 10:15am. If you need directions, e-mail Joseph at okuni(at)riseup.net
