The Nature Conservancy is looking for volunteers to help remove invasive blackberry at Cascade Head Preserve just north of Lincoln City on Saturday, May 4.

The coastal promontory provides critical habitat for native prairie grasses, rare wildflowers, the threatened Oregon Silverspot butterfly and the Cascade Head catchfly.

The work party includes a four-to-five-mile roundtrip hike with elevation gain and might require volunteers to hike off trail and stand on uneven ground while working. Participants should bring hiking shoes, a daypack, lunch and snacks, a full water bottle, layers of clothing, raingear, a hat and sunscreen. Those who have work gloves should bring them, although some pairs will be available to borrow.

Registration is required. For more information or to register, call 503-802-8100, email orvolunteers@tnc.org or call the alternate contact, Debbie Pickering, at 541-994-5564.
