In recent years, illegal dumping and the development of illegal shooting areas at the North end of Cabin Butte Pit have caused many locals to avoid the area. Overall recreational use has greatly decreased due to accumulation of trash, evidence of careless shooting, and drug use.
Discover Your Forest, the Deschutes National Forest Service and REI are joining forces to help clean and restore the area, including picking up several dump loads of trash and recyclable material. The project will also
decommission four illegally developed shooting areas, as well as install 500 ft. of rail fencing and visitor signage explaining the project. In addition, volunteers will build and install about 20 bee boxes to protect bees and encourage pollinator sustainability in Central Oregon.
