October 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join Megan Hill for a salmon walk along Spring Creek near the Metolius River.

Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Megan Hill for a salmon walk along Spring Creek near the Metolius River. This beautiful, privately-owned property includes wetland habitat, quaking aspens, mixed conifer forests, and outstanding habitat for wildlife including kokanee and Chinook salmon. We’ll take a walk along Spring Creek and the Metolius River to observe kokanee salmon spawning during their annual rite. Learn about efforts to restore Chinook and sockeye salmon to the Metolius River and its tributaries. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.

Hike Rating: This is a moderate ~2 mile hike. Portions will be on established trails and through grassy meadows.
Route: This hike will start at the Camp Sherman store and follow the Metolius River trail. Once on the Spring Creek property, trails are through grassy meadows. Terrain will be uneven at times.
Elevation gain/loss: There is very little elevation gain/loss on this hike.

What to Bring: Snacks/lunch, water, closed toe shoes. Dress for the weather.

Accessibility: The Land Trust is working to make our Walks + Hikes as accessible as possible. Please email us at event@deschuteslandtrust.org at least one week in advance if there is something we can do or provide to support you in participating in this outing to the fullest and we will accommodate as possible.
