January Bark About Hike to Alder Flat

Sunday, January 14, 2018 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Join Bark hike leaders Lo and Leah to explore Alder Flat, one of the most beautiful trails along the Clackamas River. On this hike we will explore areas recently re-inhabited by a beaver, and surrounding intact old growth forest. We'll discuss how beavers fit into forests' roles of mitigating negative effects of climate change, and discuss current proposals by the Forest Service to reintroduce this animal. We'll also share information on how to take action on current timber sale proposals which undermine our region's resiliency to climate change.

Carpools leave from the Hollywood Grocery Outlet, 4420 Ne Hancock Street, (a few blocks from the Hollywood Transit Center, at the I-84 exit 2) in Portland at 9am sharp. If you are able to drive, we greatly appreciate your contribution to helping make a successful hike. If you are looking for a ride, please come prepared to reimburse your driver.  If you would like to arrange a meet-up closer to the forest, please let us know by giving us a call at our number below.

 Bring a lunch, water, and anything else you'll need to stay comfortable in the forest. To protect off-trail resources, we ask you to leave your dog at home.

Call Bark at 503-331-0374 for more details and information.
