Join Oregon Wild’s veteran naturalist Wendell Wood and Klamath Siskyou Wildlands Center for a weekend of primitive camping and hiking in the BLM’s North Fork Hunter Creek ACEC. The area is unusual for its white oaks, Jeffrey pines, manzanitas, and a place called “Stone Chair Meadow.”
On Sunday, hike to the Forest Service’s 3,500 ft Signal Butte for great views out to the ocean, and learn about unusual serpentine outcrops, associated plants, and issues surrounding a controversial proposed ORV trail
While we will be car camping, there are no developed camping facilities, so bring plenty of water, food, a shovel, and all camping supplies. A plant list for wildflowers in the area will be provided.
