Event description

Description

Fall is almost upon us and the showy milkweed growing season is coming to an end. The time has come to ready our Monarch Way Stations for the winter ahead. We will work at Foley Waters Way Station on Friday, October 12. The hike to Foley Waters, the big bend upriver from the Steelhead Falls campground, is an easier hike than the hike to Steelhead Falls on October 13.

We will meet at 9:30 a.m. at the dead-end turn around area (drive through Steelhead Falls campground to end of road). There is ample parking at this location and it shortens the hike. Please bring gardening gloves. Any other needed tools will be provided. If anyone has questions about these events, contact Donna Reinaker, Monarch Way Station Coordinator at 614-284-2340.

Please click the REGISTER button above for October 12 or CLICK HERE to sign up for October 13. You can sign up for both mornings too!

Directions to Steelhead Falls campground: From Highway 97 in Terrebonne, turn west on Northwest Lower Bridge Way. Proceed a little more than 2 miles, then turn right on Northwest 43rd Street, following signs to Crooked River Ranch. Take 43rd about 1.8 miles to the "T" at Chinook Drive. Turn left on Chinook Drive, then proceed just less than a mile and turn left onto Badger Road. Take Badger Road to its terminus at Quail Rd and turn right. Follow Quail Road for less than half a mile to River Road and turn left. Proceed on River Road downhill to the Steelhead Falls campground.
