September 23-27 – Grazing Monitoring in the Ochocos

We invite you to conduct grazing monitoring and learn how to measure and compare grazing information inside and outside livestock exclosures on 3 streams in the Ochoco Forest. We will measure browse, stubble height and stream channels to show how livestock grazing affects riparian areas and stream conditions. We propose to camp at Deep Creek Campground along the North Fork Crooked River which is a fee site that costs approximately $8/ night. Sites are first come first serve so some of us may arrive a day early to block out sites. The streams we hope to monitor are Roba, Porter and West Fork Mill creeks but may have to adjust sites since streams with flowing water are preferred. Folks can come for the day, stay a day or two or the whole time. Please email ryndaclark@gmail.com to be included on this interest list.
