Sand and sandbags are available from local retailers throughout the Rogue Valley. Although this is a list of retailers that typically carry stock, we do not keep a list of current on-hand stock. You may want to call the retailers to check current inventory. Click on the link below for a list. 

Please note that although there are a few municipalities that give sand and/or bags away for free, you will generally need to purchase your own.
