WELCOME TO SUNNY VALLEY!
Completed June 13, 2017! After 6 long months of preparation and restoration, the signs are reinstalled and once again welcome home residents and greet tourists and visitors!
PROTECTING THE GRAVE CREEK COVERED BRIDGE
The beautiful and unique bridge that greets visitors and residents was being jeopardized by vandals, illegal camping, and drug traffic. Residents and tourists no longer felt safe while visiting the area. A group of volunteers went to work painting over the taggings, cutting brush and weeds and hauling off yards of garbage.

PROTECTING AND IMPROVING THE GRAVE CREEK WATERSHED
GRAVE CREEK IS A CLASS 1 STREAM THAT RUNS THROUGH THE HEART OF SUNNY VALLEY AND REACHES ITS END AT THE CONFLUENCE WITH THE ROGUE RIVER. ITS WATERS SUPPORT DWINDLING POPULATIONS OF COHO SALMON AND SUMMER STEELHEAD AS WELL AS AGRICULTURAL IRRIGATION AND RECREATION FOR THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND TOURISTS. THE CREEK AND ITS TRIBUTARIES ARE IN NEED OF PROTECTION FROM FURTHER ALLOCATIONS AND PRESERVATION THROUGH RESTORATION. FRIENDS OF COUNTRY LIVING WILL BE ACTIVELY CAMPAIGNING TO SUPPORT THIS PROTECTION AND RESTORATION BY PARTNERING WITH OTHER GROUPS INCLUDING WATERWATCH OF OREGON, ROGUE RIVERKEEPERS, ROGUE ADVOCATES, MIDDLE ROGUE STEELHEADERS, AND A GROWING LIST OF ALLIES.
