Coyote Wall Weekend Work Party
To Sunday, December 09, 2018 - 03:30pm
This weekend work party is for those of you who want to try your hand at rock work! We'll be working to harden two parts of the trail to minimize erosion. Join us for one day or both!
About the Area
Situated just upstream from White Salmon on the Columbia River, the Coyote Wall area offers great views of the Columbia River Gorge along with enchanting stands of oak, cascading waterfalls, dramatic basalt outcroppings and profuse wildflowers in the spring.
What to Expect
We'll have fun, work hard and make a difference! Volunteer on Saturday, Sunday or both days. No experience is necessary.
We'll be working to harden two heavily eroded parts of the trail to minimize future erosion. Whether you're a rock work professional or you've never tried to move a rock in your life, this project is sure to be engaging and rewarding!
