Family Walk: Say Cheese, Go Wild!

 

 

 

 

How do biologists study wildlife from afar yet get so up-close? Get a unique hands-on look into how we “capture” wildlife using remote trail cameras. Go for a guided walk, put cameras along the trail, see what critters we film, and take a photo home with you. Join Greenbelt Land Trust and Greenbelt Volunteer Naturalist and OSU biologist, Jonny Armstrong, for this free, kid-friendly event at the Bald Hill Farm conservation area. Light snacks provided. Space is limited, so RSVP today!

*This event is brought to you by Greenbelt Land Trust and Hike it Baby.

Kids Wildlife Walk & Crafts

Kids are naturally drawn to wildlife through stories, the imagination, and personal experience. By connecting with wildlife, kids learn more about nature and themselves. Join Greenbelt Land TrustHike it Baby, and a wildlife biologist for a special outing where we’ll explore wildlife signs and tracks at Bald Hill Farm. We’ll enjoy a group story about Oregon’s wildlife (written by a local author), take a walk along the forested Mulkey Ridge trail in search of wildlife signs, and make a wildlife-themed craft you can take home!

This event is free and family-friendly. Although kids of all ages are welcome, this event is ideal for ages 4 to 10. Light snacks provided.

Space is limited. For more information or to RSVP, please email Rebecca.

 

 

National Trails Day- Volunteer Field Day **FILLED**

*Thank you for your interest! This volunteer day is currently full.

The journey continues along the trail! The beloved trails at Bald Hill Farm need some TLC, or Trail Loving Care! GLT is looking for some hardy volunteers with a big heart to help repair trails for the entire community. Let’s celebrate National Trails Day by giving back to our local trails!

Activity:

Join us to patch damaged sections of trail and to clear vegetation from trail edges so hikers don’t get poison oak and weed seeds don’t spread.

Participation:

  • Being active at your own pace for several hours
  • Hiking up to 6 miles on uneven natural surface trail where some poison oak is present
  • Carrying hand tools and gear
  • Shoveling and steering a motorized toter for up to one mile
