September Bark About Hike: Mt. Hood Mosses

Sunday, September 10, 2017 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Join us on our September Bark About to explore the mysterious world of mosses! Since they retain water and humidity in their habitats, mosses are ecologically important. In addition, they contribute to soil fertility and control flooding. Bark hike leaders Rachel and Mia will take us on a journey through some mossy parts of the Crystal Clear Timber Sale, where we'll investigate these organisms together.

Carpools leave from the Hollywood Trader Joe’s, 4121 NE Halsey, (across the street from the Hollywood Transit Center, near 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.

Although smoke levels in Oregon are projected to decrease over the weekend, we recommend checking out these resources before attending the hike if you are a person with asthma, heart and lung disease, an older adult or are bringing children:
