"Five or six years ago, I don't believe the chapter had any projects," said McCrae. "This year we're doing 11, which is almost double from the 6 we had last year. Next year, I'm sure we'll do more.It's easy to start projects;I just talked to the local Forest Service stations and created a partnership. I help set up all of the projects, create flyers, and send them to as many people as I can. It really has been something we've worked diligently onto get going and the difference we're making is dramatic.."
Outdoor Life has teamed up with the Eugene chapter as part of its Open Country program and there are three more projects left in 2013 in need of volunteers.
