May Bark About: A Mother's Day Outing (in person)

Sunday, May 9, 2021 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

Happy Mothers' Day!  All are welcome to join us on a gentle excursion to the forest for nurturing and nourishing ourselves and each other, and learning about how the forest nurtures and nourishes.  This outing will be in the Lolo Pass area, approximately 90 minutes drive from Portland. There will be off-trail walking in the forest which may include stepping over logs or walking in mud.  We will avoid steep slopes and we will move at a gentle pace with frequent stops along the way.  The area may be moist; we recommend waterproof footwear and/or bring dry shoes/socks to change into.

Please note: This in-person outing will follow COVID-19 protocols. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Driving directions will be sent to registrants before the event. If the tickets are full, please sign up for the waitlist. If public health policies allow, we will increase the number of participants at the event. There will not be carpooling and we ask that you only travel with people who are in your contact bubble. Participants will be required to wear face coverings and maintain physical distance from others outside their contact bubble.

Since the beginning, Bark has offered free, monthly hikes to Mt. Hood National Forest and surrounding public lands. We believe that by witnessing the breathtaking Cascade ecosystem and learning about the many threats it faces, we can build stronger advocates for the protection of our public lands. Our hike leaders are passionate, knowledgeable volunteers who incorporate information about forest ecology and policy with how to get involved in our efforts.
