Join us on an in-person outing to explore Latourell Falls and the surrounding forests! Join Madelyn Morris, owner of Mickelberry Gardens and Dr. Lupin DeMuth, ND as we celebrate the benefits and beauty of our flowering plants. This trail will journey through one of the most healthy and biodiverse forests in our region and is the perfect setting to experience nature's impressive blooming season. Along the way, we'll incorporate mindfulness practices and discuss the importance of native pollinator plants, as well as plants used for general health and wellness.
On this hike, we will walk 2.1 miles on a trail with 625 ft elevation gain. We will be walking slowly and stopping to discuss plants often.
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. 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.
