Author and hiking guru William L. Sullivan will take us on a slide show tour of new and changed trails he discovered while updating his "100 Hikes" guidebooks for Oregon. Although some trails closed in 2017 because of fire, Sullivan balances that news with descriptions of an equal number of new destinations from around the state. We'll visit a reopened waterfall trail in Central Oregon, learn what's changed in the Columbia Gorge, sample a new section of the Oregon Coast Trail, and explore hot springs in Eastern Oregon. As always, Sullivan spices his talk with anecdotes about history, wildflowers, and geology along the way. Sullivan is the author of 22 books about history, mystery, and adventure. His latest is an illustrated travel journal, "Little Travelers: Six Months in Europe With Two Kids." His journal of a 1000-mile hike across Oregon, "Listening for Coyote," was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon's 100 most significant books. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. This event is free for FANs of the Deschutes Canyon Area members. Non-members pay $3 at the door.

This event is sponsored by Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area (FANs), a group founded in 2011 by landowners surrounding the Deschutes Canyon Wilderness Study Area in Central Oregon who came together over their shared love of nearby public lands. The focus area of the FANs includes many special places such as Steelhead Falls, Alder Springs, the Peninsula, Otter Bench and Scout Camp. If you are interested in becoming a FAN, membership forms and literature will be available at this presentation. We look forward to meeting you!
