Please see our Meetup group site for the most current information about our outings and events.

 

Saturday, May 03, 2014, 9:00AM — Hike Sweet Creek Falls

Saturday, May 3 – Hike Sweet Creek Falls Trail We will hike Sweet Creek from the Homestead Trailhead past Split Falls, Punch Bowl Falls, and Ledge Falls to the end of the trail and back. This will be a fun chance to see coastal wildflowers and the falls at their best with all the spring rains we have been having. Sweet Creek is just across the Siuslaw River from Mapleton where we will plane on having lunch at Alpha-Bit Gallery/Cafe. This is an easy 2.5 mile walk in the woods with almost zero elevation gain until the very last section. Part of the trail is on a metal cat walk above the creek for great views of Maiden Hair Ferns, Yellow Monkey Flowers, and Trilliums.

Please come with water, rain gear,water resistant foot wear, camera and your curiosity.  This is a no dog outing.

Thursday, May 08, 2014, 7:00PM — GASLAND Part II

Join us for a screening of Gasland Part II


GASLAND Part I explored the widespread contamination, pollution and health effects of the largest industrial drilling campaign in history across the U.S. Famous scenes of people lighting their water on fire reverberated across the world and created awareness of the dangers of drilling and fracking. GASLAND Part II is just as thrilling an investigation, but this time the GASLAND team focused on another level of contamination due to fracking, and the result is every bit as shocking as the first film.

Doors open at 6:30, screening starts at 7:00.

Description: Let's catch one of the lowest tides of the year (-2.5) at Seal Rock north of Waldport. This beach has the best tide pools on the Oregon Coast with several areas to scramble and picnic. We will have two inter-tidal experts along to answer questions and point out unique tide pool life. Bring your lunch, rubber-boots, a walking stick for balance on slippery rocks, cameras, and binoculars if you have them. We will enjoy our lunch overlooking Elephant Rock and the coastal panorama.

Difficulty: Easy, minimal distance, Families are welcome on this outing.

Elevation Gain: 40 ft. down from the parking lot to the beach

Preparation: Bring plenty of water, lunch, rain jacket, an extra layer of clothing, sun hat, sunscreen, and water-resistant hiking boots.  I really recommend a walking stick for the tide pool rocks.

Dog Policy: This is a no dog outing.

More Information: This will be about a two hour drive so we will all need to carpool. Please share expenses with your driver.
