Mushroom Hike to Gordon Creek

Our annual hike with Mushroom Mark is back! Join us as Mark DesMarets explains the mysterious world of mycology, including a hunt for your supper table. We will walk through the old-growth units of the BLM's proposed Gordon Creek Timber Sale. Currently this timber sale is in a comment period and the BLM is asking for input from the public. This is great way to find out more about a potentially destructive timber sale, while enjoying the wonders of the Mt. Hood's ecosystems.

Please bring: knife, and small basket or cloth bag if you want to take home some edible mushrooms.

Carpools leave from the Daily Grind (SE Hawthorne & 40th) at 9am. Please arrive punctually so we can check you in, arrange rides and give a brief overview of the day's plans. Remember to wear warm clothes, good walking shoes and to bring lunch and water.

Call the Bark office with questions: 503-331-0374
