Last Owhyee Guzzler Project May 18-20, 2012
We are looking for volunteers to help install South Table Guzzler. This will be the 10th and final guzzler installed on the breaks of the Owhyee River Canyon as part of a cooperative project between BLM, BOR, ODFW and Volunteers from many organizations. If you are interested or know someone who may be interested please pass this information along. To ensure we have enough food please RSVP by Friday May 11th.

We will be camping at Twin Spring Campground this year. Twin Springs is located on the west side of the Owhyee Reservoir (see direction below). Volunteers should show up on Friday May 18th for dinner at 7:00 pm which will be provided. There will be a short briefing after dinner to discuss the weekend's activities. Saturday we will travel south on unimproved roads approximately 1 hour. Accessing the site involves a 2 mile walk along the ridge top and a moderate climb to the site. The major materials have been flown in but some supplies will need to be packed in, mostly hand tools. We will install ground apron style guzzler and construct a fence around the site.
As with past projects, meals will be provided Friday evening through breakfast on Sunday. Additionally you will need to bring good boots, gloves, day pack, canteen, camping gear and personal effects and be prepared for variable weather conditions. There will be some BIG tents avable to sleep in.
