My Brothers Farm Restoration Project

RESTORATION AT THE FARM
Restoration efforts began in 2017 on this multi-phased project. Three grants from Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB), a grant from Meyer Memorial Trust (MMT), and funding from the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program provided funding for removal of invasive species and the regeneration of native plant species on over 70 acres of the farm located along the mainstem of the Coast Fork Willamette River.

In Winter 2018 over 48,000 native trees and shrubs were planted throughout the project area. In early Spring 2018 nearly 10,000 tubes were placed on the plants in order to protect them from deer and beaver. Summer 2018 activities included irrigation and survival surveys conducted by some of the Coast Fork Youth Crew members.

Future efforts include plant establishment and site preparation and planting of an additional 35,000 native trees and shrubs (Phase II) in early 2019. Plant establishment (maintenance) including irrigation, mowing, and invasive species removal will continue through 2022 or the plantings are considered to be in the "free to grow" stage. Additional phases to the project are currently underdevelopment for implementation in 2020 and beyond.
