May Bark About Hike: Native Wildflowers in the Charcoal Forest

Sunday, May 13, 2018 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Spend Mother’s Day with native wildflowers in an area of Mt. Hood National Forest recently affected by wildfire. See how it blooms. Hike leaders Rachel Freifelder and Lo Goldberg have many years of experience as forest ecologists, and Rachel studied fire ecology as a graduate student at Stanford University. Zak Weinstein of the Native Plant Society of Oregon's Portland Chapter (NPSO-PDX) will add expertise on the plants we see.

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. This event is part of NPSO-PDX's Native Plant Month series.

If you are willing to drive in our carpool, please review Bark's Driver Safety Expectations before coming.
