The High Desert Committee will be leading two trips to the desert this summer. Descriptions and contacts follow. We also think there is a probability we will offer a fall multi-day trip as well but have not finalized plans. Visit our website for updates.
Jun 26 – 30, 2013
Calling all desert enthusiasts! We are once again hosting an Owyhee Rendezvous–a time and a place to meet together and explore, enjoy, and learn how to protect the Owyhee Canyonlands area. The landscape of our current campaign, the Owyhee Canyonlands, is vast and diverse. We will form a base camp at Leslie Gulch, and from there lead daily hikes. Day hikes will visit areas in and around Leslie Gulch, Three Forks, Jordan Craters, Painted Gulch and more. We also hope to organize a day of service with the BLM. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to meet up with old and new friends in a stunningly beautiful place.To register, contact: Bill Hart, 503-236-8058, firstname.lastname@example.org
Steens Mountain Fence Pull
Jul 26 – 31, 2013
Want to help add a bit more “wild” to the Steens Mountain wilderness? Join us in removing the visual blight of old fencing that’s also a danger to hikers and wildlife. This year we will backpack in to our work site. No experience necessary! We will have down time to explore the area. We will even feed you dinner. The work is strenuous and the climate hot, but you’ll walk away with a feeling of accomplishment! To register, contact: Harry Anderton, 503-241-7035, email@example.com.
