Elk Meadows on Mount Hood
Come study mountain plant medicines… in the mountains! With a small group of five students, we will visit this extraordinary meadow: an incredible gem on the east side of Mount Hood. We will see wildlife, ancient trees, and many amazing medicinal plants. Huckleberry habitat, a river crossing, and some real hiking takes us to a gorgeous meadow full of mountain wildflowers.
Hiking difficulty: Moderate, includes somewhat steep 1000 foot elevation gain on switchbacks, and one slightly tricky river crossing. Please sign up for this hike if you are adventurous and capable.
To bring: Clothing for all possible mountain weather including layers, hats, sunscreen and good hiking shoes. Note taking materials, harvesting containers and bags (we may see a lot of huckleberries and other things). Bring and carry enough water for a whole day, a lunch, and other snacks.
