Oregon Parks Forever and SOLVE Oregon are Inviting All Outdoor Enthusiasts to Help Restore the Minto County Park

Posted on October 17, 2023

Oregon Parks Forever and SOLVE Oregon are inviting all outdoor enthusiasts to join us as “We Care For Parks” helps restore the Minto County Park in Gates, OR on Saturday and Sunday, November 4 & 5th.

If you have driven the Santiam Highway between Salem and Detroit, you know the devastation wrought by the Labor Day fires in 2021.

We Care for Parks volunteer teams will assist in a variety of maintenance activities. From general park clean-up and removal of invasive plants to construction projects like building footpath bridges and laying out gravel paths through the park.  We’re excited to join forces with SOLVE Oregon to help turn this park into an oasis on the route from Salem to Detroit.

You can join us for either or both Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. When you register you will receive more details on the event. (We can say that there will be a break for lunch, with food carts at the park, and we have some pretty sweet swag to say “thank you” for your help. )

Space is limited, and you can sign up to reserve a place. Sign up here:
