The Fall planting of our Public Safety Project is now complete!
Steve Williams and I (Bill Cogley), purchased and planted the final plants needed for the completion of our Public Safety Project in the Tillamook State Forest, at the improved dispersed target shooting location on the North Fork Wolf Creek Rd shooting lanes.
We created this project to change the look and feel of a certain location where some people had been target shooting. It was a public safety hazard and we wanted to deter shooting there by removing the temptation (make it look like it’s not a place to shoot).
This past Spring, we conducted a fundraiser that brought in just enough to cover the Spring and Fall costs ($1750), we purchased over 200 native trees and shrubs, and brought in a tractor to till the ground and knocked down a short dirt berm. Over twenty people came to help plant the initial plants, most of which were hearty enough to make it through a dry summer.
The planting this Fall was to replace the ones that didn’t survive and plant the ones that will take root in the wet winter weather.
