On June 19, the Cascade Volcanoes Broadband will be helping the Cascade Forest Conservancy and the Forest Service collect important data on stream culverts, forest road conditions, erosion and fish passage near Bear Creek, Washington (near Carson) in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. We will tour remote forest roads to collect this information, which will be used to help the Forest Service prioritize road restoration efforts, such as repairing blocked culverts, fixing erosion issues, minimizing channels of sediment delivery to streams, or closing at-risk roads.
When: June 19, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Where: Meet at Backwoods Brewing, Carson, WA (1162 Wind River Hwy, Carson). We'll go over project logistics and then break up into groups of four or five in order to visit a variety of roads in the project area. (perhaps regrouping at Backwoods afterwards?)
Is this trip for me? Road survey trips require walking about 2 miles total. Although some roads are rough, most are open roads with a gravel or dirt base. Measuring culverts does require traversing steep roadsides.
Carpooling: Yes! As we figure out how many and where we need to meet.
Questions: Call Jane 503-720-2187.
