Hosted by Wildsight supporter and very knowledgeable plant guy, Bryan Kelly-MacArthur, naturalist, we will walk the moderately rigorous Columbia River trail and explore the plant life along the way. This walk will be 4 hours and will occur along the Columbia Trail.

The walk will begin promptly at 12:30 PM and carry on until 4:30 PM. 

Participants should bring a handlens or lupe, trail snacks and water, good walking shoes, mosquito repellent, and weather appropriate clothing.

This walk & talk is not suitable for children under 5 and there will be absolutely no dogs allowed

Parking is available on the edge of the road 1.5 km along the Dogtooth FSR which turns off from Golf Course Drive, and just before heading up hill to Gorman Lake. There is very adequate parking beside (and well off) the road  at this  point. .The trailhead is very close to this location.

The purpose of the walk will be to learn about the biodiversity of our area, observing plants, lichens and fungi, but it is not a picking or gathering session. The overall goal is to appreciate, preserve and protect our natural world and it is our hope that participants will learn and share this message.

This event is by registration only. Cost is $15/adult, $8 for a child and $35 for a family. There is a maximum of 10 participants.
