KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — On Saturday, June 15, 2024, the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLMs) Klamath Falls Field Office is hosting a Volunteer Event at Wood River Wetlands from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Volunteers will meet at the Wood River Wetlands trailhead at 10 a.m. The wetland is located northwest of Chiloquin off Modoc Point Road. The event will focus on the removal of invasive weeds. Bring lunch, water, hat, gloves, eye protection, camera, and wear sturdy shoes. Long sleeves and pants are suggested. Tools will be provided.

Please send an email to kjohnston@blm.gov with your daytime phone number if you are interested. There will be a safety talk at the trailhead for all participants at 10 a.m. 

This volunteer event is the perfect hands-on opportunity to experience what the nation’s public lands have to offer. Everyone is welcome to help restore, beautify, and improve the outdoor spaces and recreation areas we all benefit from and enjoy.  

The 3,200-acre wetland is part of the historic delta of the Wood River adjacent to Agency Lake, and it includes three miles of public access to the riverbanks of the Wood River itself. Since acquiring the property in 1994, the Bureau of Land Management has focused primarily on wetland and river channel restoration. Water in the 3,200-acre wetland is manipulated to enhance the habitat for wetland plants and processes, while improving water quality for fish and wildlife in Wood River.
