Bark About to Fish Creek

Sunday, February 14th, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Join Bark this Valentines Day, Feb. 14th, and get to know the National Forest you love, a little better. This month's Bark About will bring you to Fish Creek to walk along closed roads through beautiful regenerating forest.

This area is a microcosm of many issues that Bark is working on in the National Forest, and we will be discussing them in relation to the proposed Palomar Pipeline. The current route of the Palomar Pipeline will run through Fish Creek, damaging old growth, reopening closed roads, and placing water quality at risk for both salmon and people.

What better way to make Mother Earth your Valentine than by getting to know her better and learning how to protect her. See you on the trail!

Carpools meet at the Hollywood Trader Joe's, 4121 NE Halsey in Portland. It is across the street from the Hollywood Transit Center, near the I-84 exit 2. If you would like to meet us between Portland and the forest, please call the Bark office in the week before the hike to arrange a meeting location.

Please bring lunch, water and sturdy sneakers or boots. As well, the weather is very unpredictable this time of year, so don't forget extra layers of clothes. We also HIGHLY encourage people to bring money for gas to give to people willing to drive. We sincerely appreciate people who make our carpools work and hope you can help us keep this tradition alive by directly supporting our volunteer carpool.

For questions about the hike or what to bring, please call the office at 503-331-0374 in the week before the hike.

The hike on Sunday will be about 3 miles round trip. We will not be on steep terrain, though we may be going over creeks. Waterproof shoes or boots are highly encouraged. If people have specific questions, please don't hesitate to call the Bark office anytime before Saturday and ask for me, amy. 503-331-0374. Thanks!
