2018 Spring Hike Series: Fall River Springs

DESCRIPTION

LandWatch is excited to offer a series of spring walks to some of the most spectacular field sites in Central Oregon as part of our Rivers & Springs program. These trips include beautiful springs, pristine riparian corridors, and dramatic stream and river confluences. We will explore some of the region's fascinating hydrology, including the connection between ground water and surface springs, while engaging in restorative walks, including guided reflection on our connection to the natural environment.

Join us for this walk around Fall River Springs, Big Tree/Dead Slough, and the confluence of the Fall River with the Upper Deschutes River.
