The Beauty of Green

Tetherow Completes Restoration Project

Chris Condon, Coulee Prince and the golf course maintenance crew at Tetherow recently completed a 2-year ongoing restoration project on Pine Mountain (part of the Bend Ft. Rock Ranger District of the Deschutes National Forest.) As a team, they planted approximately 300 trees and shrubs on April 25 & 26 to provide food and cover for the mountain’s wildlife. Due to a reduction in hiding cover for mule deer, the goal was to enhance and increase browsing on winter range by planting mountain mahogany.  This tree/shrub is a superb source of nutritional value for deer, and is also utilized by many other wildlife species, including sage thrasher and Virginia’s warbler, which are highly tied to this habitat. According to the US Forest… Read More
