It’s What We Do: Rogue River Basin Project and SOLV volunteers clean up shorelines

NPLD group-webAs part of SOLV’s Beach and Riverside Clean Up on Sept. 27, natural resource staff from the Rogue River Basin Project partnered with many local organizations to host more than 100 volunteers who cleaned up the shoreline along the Rogue River from McGregor Park down to Gold Hill, Oregon.   Multiple Rogue River watershed associations, Jackson County, the Bureau of Land Management and the Girl Scouts of America all were involved in making this event a huge community success!

Restoring, enhancing and maintaining ecosystems is an important facet of the Corps mission.

McGregor Park is located 30 miles northeast of Medford, Oregon on the banks of the beautiful Rogue River. The park is situated along the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway (Highway 62) just below Lost Creek Lake and near Cole Rivers Fish Hatchery. Barrier-free facilities at McGregor Park provide access to restrooms, trails, picnic areas, a playground, fishing ramps, interpretive displays, and wildlife and salmon viewing.
