9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Fire Ecology & Recovery
Easy: 3-4 miles | some elev. gain

U.S. Forest Service Biological Science Technician Kate Santini will lead us on the Herman Creek trail to view the 2017 Eagle Creek fire’s mosaic burn patterns and to learn how fire affects forest ecology. We’ll cover basic fire terminology, fire hazards on the trail, and things to consider when hiking in a post-burn area.

Note: we'll be traveling in the Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness area so the group size is limited to a maximum of 12.

A duplicate (members-only) outing is scheduled for Saturday, May 11
