Friday Field Trip
Eagle Creek Fire of 2017
The Sustainability Committee is sponsoring an added activity to the Fall Conference and you won't want to miss out!
The Eagle Creek Fire of 2017 struck the heart of the cherished Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. We'll use the Eagle Creek Fire experience to learn about emergency response management, restoration strategies and public safety, and the ecological impacts of fire. The field trip will begin with a 20-30 minute session at the conference center (location to be announced) with an introduction from the Forest Service, followed by a walk-and-learn onsite at Multnomah Falls. This is first come, first serve onsite Friday immediately following the Conference Closing Luncheon. Participants will provide their own transportation. The committee will provide volunteers to watch cars in the parking lot.
