*We are at capacity for this Out-And-About Nature Hike. Waiting list room only.

Educators of Straub Outdoors, the Willamette Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon, and the Willamette Valley Mushroom Society will be leading an all-day hike to discover the fall mushrooms along the Pamelia Lake Trail, in the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness Area. This 4.5-mile out and back trail (with 800 feet of elevation gain) meanders along Pamelia Creek towards the picturesque Pamelia Lake, featuring old growth trees, a variety of woody tree conks (such as the white speck conk, the red belt conk, and quinine conk), and stunning views of Mt. Jefferson! Bring a sack lunch, water, and appropriate foot gear and clothing.

Location: Meet in the parking lot at the Willamette Heritage Center at 9:00 am. Transportation will be provided to and from the trailhead.

Cost: $10/participant. Spaces is limited to 10 participants ages 12 and up. Pre-registration is required. Cash or check accepted.
