Take a Self-Guided Field Trip of Youngs Rock Rigdon
July 18, 2019
If you haven't had a chance to make it to a public field trip or just want to investigate the project area at your own pace, you can now take a self-guided field trip using the Avenza app. This tool allows you to learn about the proposed actions related to aquatics, vegetation, wildlife, and human uses for the first project within the larger Rigdon landscape. The app includes geo-located stops, descriptions, and images from the Forest Service and SWFC. Instructions for both Android and iOS are available along with a handout, maps, and a file with the field trip stops on the Rigdon Meeting Resources page under the heading “Avenza map and layer.”
Taking a self-guided field trip to the area is a great way to learn about the Youngs Rock Rigdon project scope and plans for restoration. The project's initial public comment phase just wrapped up with a second anticipated in the fall as part of the NEPA process, so this summer is an ideal time to visit the site. Getting to the project area involves a 50-minute drive southeast of Oakridge on Forest Service Road 21.
