Volunteers will descend on the oceanfront 804 Trail in Yachats this Saturday, Aug. 18, to help out at the 10th annual ivy pull, aimed at keeping the historic route clear of invasive species.
The event, organized by the Yachats Trails Committee, Dahl Disposal Service, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, SOLVE and the Overleaf Lodge & Spa, will start at 9 am in the lodge’s parking lot at 280 Overleaf Lodge Lane.
Participants should bring work gloves, a water bottle and weeding tools — or they can choose from the gloves and tools that will be on loan at the site.
After the pulling is done at about noon, the Overleaf will host a barbecue for all participants. Everyone is welcome to bring a side dish or dessert to share. Water and soft drinks will be provided. The Overleaf will also provide ivy pull participants with day passes for the spa facility as well as a chance to win a gift certificate good toward a variety of spa treatments.
