Clack Creek Rubus Nivalis 039.JPG

Facilitator: Ross Muirhead (with special guest)

Ross Muirhead will lead participants on the Clack Creek Gallery Loop Trail.  He'll provide tree and plant identification and the signs of Elk, Deer, Bear and Wolf.  The hike is moderate rating and is 2 to 3 hours in duration, including stops, on a flagged trail.  It is a Mature forest (80-160 years old), however due to it being well-established it structurally functions as an old-growth forest.  

All ages welcome with children 15 years and under accompanied by an adult.
