  • 5:00pm: Backpack Cathrine Creek
    Visit the dry, eastern part of the Columbia Gorge at Catherine Creek. If you are up for a somewhat strenuous climb uphill, you will be rewarded with wildflowers, views of the Columbia river gorge and Mt. Hood, and a secluded campsite. Poison oak, ticks, and rattle snakes can be common in April, but well worth the risk to explore this beautiful area! You will leave early Saturday morning and return Sunday in time for dinner.

  • All Day: Edible Plants, Ethnobotany, & Waterfalls Day Trip
    Spring on the sunny, dry side of the Columbia Gorge is amazing.  Learn to identify, as well as taste, some of the edible plants of the eastern part of the Columbia Gorge.  Learn about Native American uses of plants and trees.  Not only that, but learn about some of the poisonous plants you would want to avoid if you’re “wild foraging”!
