Join us for a Habitat Enhancement Project on the McKenzie River


Join the Caddis Fly Angling Shop and McKenzie River Trust for a volunteer planting project on the middle McKenzie River! This project will help to restore native plant communities in the 85-acre Finn Rock Reach restoration project site. Completed in summer of 2021, this restoration project helped to improve spawning and rearing habitat in the McKenzie River for native fish species including Spring Chinook Salmon and Bull Trout. Volunteers will work alongside restoration specialists from the trust to plant a variety of native plant species. The Finn Rock Reach restoration area is only accessible by foot so bring your boots and waders! Work will be moderately strenuous with activities including wading, walking on uneven ground, and bending over for prolonged periods of time.

Join us from 9:30am-12pm on Saturday, January 29th and help to care for this special river in our backyard! Pizza lunch will be provided for all participants to enjoy after the project.

Don’t have your own waders? No problem! Contact Elizabeth Goward at with your size information and we can almost certainly get you outfitted in waders and boots, generously donated to the Trust by Caddis Fly Angling shop in support of community conservation initiatives.
