Go Here 4/8-4/15 

These Boots Are Made for Hiking

There are so many things about spring in Central Oregon to love. Not the least of them is the unveiling of the Deschutes Land Trust free hike schedule. For over a decade, the Deschutes Land Trust has worked tirelessly to conserve thousands of acres of vitally important lands in Central Oregon. DLT lands serve as living natural history museums of our area, each of which possess historical, social, and ecological characteristics unique to this place we call home. DLT hikes are low key nature walks through DLT lands, led by local naturalists, highlighting the best of what these lands offer us. There are 110 hikes scheduled for the 2015 season. Here's two not to be missed in April:

Beginning Bird Walk, Camp Polk Meadow Preserve

Led by local birder Carol Wall, this two-mile stroll through Camp Polk Meadow is intended to provide instruction to would-be birders. But, with more than 160 known species in the area, old hats are likely to enjoy it as well. April 11, 9 am-2 pm.

Summit Loop Hike, Smith Rock State Park

This is new hike to the DLT repertoire. Led by local volcanologist extraordinaire Daniele McKay and Master Naturalist Carol Moorehead, this seven-mile hike will take participants from the summit, across privately owned DLT lands, and down along the river, highlighting the unique geology, flora, and fauna in each of these areas. April 22, 9 am-4 pm.
