About the Event
This event has been canceled and/or postponed until further notice; see our event status page.
Every year, wildfires rampage across the world, destroying thousands of acres of land once inhabited by profuse biological provinces. One such fire happened along the Columbia River Gorge in the fall of 2017, sometimes causing us to question the purpose of these destructive natural phenomena. Join Creation Encounter as leaders Marianne Schecklman and Marilee Janzen explore the importance of these seemingly destructive forces and the ensuing biological recovery of the region where life has risen from the ashes. This early May expedition is certain to capture the imagination as we investigate the recovering populations of birds, mammals, trees, and wildflowers.
We will meet either at Lewis & Clark Park at 8:30 am at which we can carpool to our next destination or Angels Rest Trailhead at 9 am, finally returning to the trailhead around 3 pm. This will be a seven-mile hike round-trip, so participants should be in fairly good condition. For these day tours, Creation Encounter requests a donation of $25 per family or $15 for the individual, which can be payed in person on the day of the tour. Cash or checks addressed to "John Hergenrather" will be fine.
--Please also note that we have been implementing an Acknowledgement of Risk for our tours---
