*POSTPONED* October Bark About Hike: Mushrooms of Mt. Hood

Sunday, October 8, 2017 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

This hike is POSTPONED. Stay tuned for rescheduled date. And please check out Bark's other events we have coming up this fall!

October is Bark's annual hike with Mushroom Mark to learn about the role fungus plays in our forests. You should expect to walk up to two miles off trail on this month's hike. Please bring lunch, water, and sturdy boots. And if you'd like to bring home some edible mushrooms bring a knife, basket, and paper bags. The weather is very unpredictable this time of year, so please be prepared for various weather conditions, and bring rain gear.

Also note that this year the policy has changed regarding mushroom permits in Mt Hood. In the past you could gather up to a gallon of mushrooms per vehicle without a permit. This year all mushroom gatherers are required to get a permit. However, because our hike is on a weekend, there will not be an opportunity to get a permit on the day of the hike. Contact info for Ranger Stations in Mt. Hood is below.

Carpools meet at the Hollywood Trader Joe's, 4121 NE Halsey in Portland at 9am sharp. It is across the street from the Hollywood Transit Center, near the I-84 exit 2. If you are able to drive, we greatly appreciate your contribution to helping make a successful hike. If you are looking for a ride, please come prepared to reimburse your driver. If you intend to drive, please review Bark's Expectations for All Drivers, here.
