Spring Plant Walks and Hikes are full-day explorations of different habitats of the Willamette Valley. Study in the field includes plant identification, ecological awareness, discussion of harvesting techniques and considerations, medicinal uses both traditional and modern, and medicine making.
Our exploration of Mt. Talbert includes easy hiking for a few miles with some elevation gain (elevation 740 feet). The largest of the extinct volcanos in the Portland area has an amazing variety of habitats, mature forests, and wonderful medicine plants for us to visit.
Willamette Valley Spring Hikes are family friendly! with the following rules:

- If a child’s needs must be attended to, their parent or guardian will agree to step away from the group to deal with them, including if they are complaining of cold or other discomfort.
- Inquisitive and engaged older children may ask questions during the hike, but they may not completely dominate class discussions or be disruptive to the class experience for others in any way, or they and their adult may be asked to step away.
