Prineville District Events
National Public Lands Day – September 28, 2013
Volunteers are invited to participate in National Public Lands Day. Prineville BLM will be hosting a clean-up and repair of Reynolds Pond, east of Bend. Volunteers can help install new picnic tables, trash cans and signs, along with cleaning up trash and removing old campfire rings.
The event will run from 9–1:00 with a potluck lunch from 1:00–2:00.
Individuals, families, and groups are welcome to help celebrate our public lands. Anyone wanting to help should bring gloves, sunscreen and dress for the weather, which can be cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon.
Reynolds Pond is near the north entrance to the Oregon Badlands Wilderness. To reach the pond, head east from Bend on Neff Road (which turns into Alfalfa Market Road). Head east approximately 15 miles, and turn south (right) on Walker Road and continue about a mile. When the road turns to the right, stay straight to the end of the pavement. Continue on the dirt road take the left at the fork just past the pavement – stay on the dirt road about one mile to Reynolds Pond.
