LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Mount Pisgah still isn’t safe enough to reopen after the winter storm, Lane County Parks officials said.

The recreation area was hit hard by the snowstorm a couple of weeks ago.

Brett Henry with Lane County Parks said there are still downed powerlines on some trails and broken branches hanging off trees.

Some of the branches have hit workers, but no one’s been hurt thanks to their hard hats, Henry said.

Officials plan to meet again on Friday to see if they can open the park.

They are also looking for volunteers to help clean up debris once the park has opened. If you’d like to help, call Lane County Parks at 541-682-2000.
