Outdoor lovers are asked to spend part of a day volunteering in honor of National Public Lands Day on Saturday.
The U.S. Forest Service, the National Forest Foundation, REI Bend and other organizations are asking for volunteers on a variety of half-day projects along Wychus Creek outside Sisters. The projects include planting, scattering native seeds and mulching.
Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at Creekside Park, on East Jefferson Avenue, just off of U.S. Highway 20 in Sisters for refreshments and orientation. The groups will then travel together to the project sites.
Volunteers of all ages, including families, are encouraged to participate. Projects will wrap up by 2 p.m.
