2013 Event Schedule
Conserving the Columbia River region is what we do at Columbia Land Trust, and there is no better way to understand how important that work is than to join us in the landscapes themselves. We’d love to see you out there.
Mill Creek Ridge - Saturday, May 11, $10 - SOLD OUT!!
Email us to get put on a waiting list: firstname.lastname@example.org
Come May, Mill Creek Ridge, located near The Dalles, is so covered in wildflowers that their petals literally obscure the ground in spots. Lupine and balsam root are the stars here, but so are Cascade views so sweeping they’ll make you swoon. A photography expert will be on hand to help you get the best shot. Hike the ridge or bring a camp chair. Either way, this landscape will move you.
Klickitat and Hood Rivers - Saturday, June 1, $10
Visit two sides of the Gorge and learn about two powerful rivers that feed the Columbia River: the Klickitat on the Washington side and the Hood River in Oregon. Columbia Land Trust cares for many square miles of land on and around the Klickitat, which also happens to be a Wild and Scenic River. (You’ll see why on this tour.) A recently acquired area along the Hood River is highly valued for its scenic views. We’d love to show you why we conserve land around these rivers.
Annual Picnic and Membership Meeting - Saturday, July 13, Free
The Annual Meeting and Membership Picnic is our way of saying thank you to members for helping us care for this beautiful region we call home. Always an inspiring speaker, Columbia Land Trust Executive Director Glenn Lamb will talk about our work. Kids can join an educational hike, so bring the whole family. We'll let you know exactly where we'll meet as the date approaches.
Pine Creek - Saturday, August 3, $10
Thirty-three years after the eruption of Mount St. Helens, destruction has given way to renewal. This high-powered excursion explores the lands around Pine Creek, which is critical habitat for endangered bull trout and a conservation priority for Columbia Land Trust. Lava beds, lahar flows and meadows are some of the highlights on this tour, which is intended for adventurous members: Expect three hours of driving, plus three hours of strenuous hiking. Nonetheless, the effort is well worth it.
Wild Splendor - Friday, September 13
Our annual gala fundraising dinner and auction. More information will be available soon.
Long Beach Peninsula - Saturday, September 28, $10
Protecting the lands of the Long Beach Peninsula is a high priority. One reason? The peninsula is located on the Pacific Flyway, and its wetlands are key for migrating birds. Dunes, forests, salt marshes: This tour takes you to Willapa Bay, Island and Loomis Lakes as well as newly protected lands.
