Volunteers help re-seed Bear Creek greenway

JACKSON CO., Ore.– Jackson County says a group of over 100 volunteers has been helping them along the charred Bear Creek greenway.

The Jackson County Emergency Operations Center says dozens of volunteers of all ages have helped workers spread seed, following the county’s aerial seeding efforts last week.

EOC team member Steve Lambert said the contribution of the community has been huge.

“These volunteers are essential in getting those jobs done such as spreading seed and straw. That takes a lot of manpower and they can get a lot of work done that we wouldn’t be able to do it without them.”
