Yachats will mark National Trails Day this Saturday, June 1, with a work day at the Trail of the Restless Waters at Cape Perpetua.
All local residents, visitors and trail enthusiasts are encouraged to join in as volunteers from the City of Yachats Trails Committee and Siuslaw National Forest clear and repave the route for easier walkability.
The event will run from 9 am to 1 pm. Volunteers should carpool if possible and plan to arrive by 9 am for an orientation at the lower parking lot of the Devil’s Churn, just north of the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center at 2400 Hwy. 101.
Gloves, tools, water and snacks will be provided. Participants should bring water bottles and layered clothes for changeable weather. For more information, contact Joanne Kittel at email@example.com or 541-961-8374.
And on Saturday, June 15, from 9 am to noon, the Yachats Trails committee will team with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department to extend the impact of National Trails Day. Volunteers will work on cleaning up and further preparing the new Amanda Bridge site for upcoming construction work.
Due to limited parking at the Amanda Bridge work site, volunteers should gather at 9 am in the parking lot at the north end of the Yachats Commons, 441 Hwy. 101 N., and carpool to the site. Volunteers should RSVP to Joanne Kittel at 541-961-8374 or firstname.lastname@example.org to determine carpooling needs.
The work session will be followed by a potluck picnic at the Yachats Commons picnic shelter.
