February Bark About: Wildlife tracking

Sunday, February 14, 2016 -
9:00am to 5:00pm

This month Bark and Cascadia Wild are teaming up to lead a winter tracking hike in Mt. Hood National Forest. Learn the art of animal tracking and how to help protect our threatened local forests. Cascadia Wild is dedicated to teaching people about the natural world and inspiring personal connection to nature, while Bark is dedicated to protecting Mt. Hood National Forest. Check out www.cascadiawild.org to learn more about their work.

We are encouraging folks who want to brush up on their tracking skills to attend this month's Ecology Club: Wildlife tracking

Please be prepared to hike off trail.  Bring lunch, water, and whatever else you need to feel comfortable. We are anticipating being in the snow for this hike, so PLEASE don't forget extra layers of wool clothes, socks and warm boots. To protect off-trail resources, we ask that you leave your dog at home.

This hike is likely a snowshoe hike, so if you have a pair please bring them along. If not, Bark has a few pairs to loan out for the day. Please call Bark at 503-331-0374 for more information and to see if we have a pair of snowshoes for you. Next Adventure also rents out snowshoes for affordable prices, if you are interested in the hike and need snowshoes please also consider calling them at (503) 233-0706.

If you are a resident of Hood River county and would like to meet the hike closer to the forest, we'll be stopping at 10:30 am at the junction of Hwy 35 and the south end of the road to Cooper Spur (after the highway enters Mt Hood NF).  There’s a pull out on the left side of the Cooper Spur road. Click here for driving directions from The Hood River area.

Be prepared to hike off trail. Bring lunch, water, and whatever else you need to feel comfortable for a day in the forest. To protect off trail resources, please no dogs on this hike.

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.
