Come join the wild Salmon run in the Columbia River Gorge on this exciting search for wildlife! We’ll visit a fish hatchery to explore the trails and diverse habitat. We will hike parts of the forest that are supported by the salmon run and if luck joins us, we could spot a few Osprey and Bald Eagle.
Experience the colorful songbirds returning from their winter homes. Go deep into the woods with binoculars in hand to search for our feathered friends. Then return back to base to sketch, draw and color your findings on paper. You will also have time to sing back some of the incredible sounds that you experienced in the forest at spring time.
Come explore the tall, green and brown beings that inhabit our local forest. Learn to identify different tree barks, sketch the shapes of leaves, collect samples in the forest and even plant your own seeds. We will make nature-based crafts with the natural materials that our nurturing forest provides.
Let’s learn about the water cycle and how it affects all the plants and animals of the PNW in the spring! We will head down to the creek to investigate about the health of our local creeks and run water quality experiments.
