CANCELED DUE TO COVID 19 CONCERNS--Program Meeting, Tuesday, April 28, 7:00 pm--New Hikes in the Central Oregon Cascades with William L. Sullivan
In this slide show presentation, Eugene author and hiking guru William L. Sullivan will take us on a tour of a dozen new or dramatically changed trails in the area between Salem and Bend. All are featured in the newly released fifth edition of his guidebook, “100 Hikes in the Central Oregon Cascades.” Included are a new path along the Deschutes River north of Bend, a new bird refuge trail at Salem, and several reopened trails to wildflowers in the Cascades. He’ll also discuss the effects of wildfires and the Forest Service’s new permit system. Along the way, expect anecdotes about local history, plants, and outdoor lore.
William L. Sullivan is the author of 22 books and numerous articles about Oregon, including an “Oregon Trails” feature column for the Eugene Register-Guard.
A fifth-generation Oregonian, Sullivan began hiking at the age of five and has been exploring new trails ever since. After studying at Deep Springs College in the California desert, receiving an English degree from Cornell University, and studying linguistics at Germany’s Heidelberg University, he earned a master’s in German literature from the University of Oregon.
William will be introduced by Ruby MConnell, a writer, geologist, and environmental activist. Among other titles, she is the author of A Woman’s Guide to the Wild, A Girl’s Guide to the Wild, and The Girl’s Guide to Nature Journal and Activity Book.
