Springs in the Fall: Metolius River Springs

Join LandWatch on our first fall Springs walk in a series of three to explore the Metolius River Springs, one of the most spectacular field sites in Central Oregon. We will experience the area’s fascinating hydrology and discuss the importance of healthy Springs while engaging in a restorative walk which will include guided reflection on our connection to the natural environment.
