Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Derek Loeb for a hike to Alder Springs with a focus on geology. We'll hike down to bubbling Alder Springs and check out examples of volcanic and sedimentary rocks that tell the story of the early Cascade mountains. Learn how these ancient rocks also formed the underground aquifers that much of Central Oregon depends on for water. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.

Hike Rating: This is a challenging 3-mile hike on trails in the Crooked River National Grasslands.

What to Bring: Snacks/Lunch, water, sturdy hiking shoes. Dress for the weather.
