(cancelled due to fires) Knob hike: Salmon River in the Klamath National Forest
Date Sunday August 20
Time 8:30 AM - 8:30 PM
Location Details
Salmon River in the Klamath National Forest
Event Type Other
Organizer/AuthorEPIC
Join us on August 20th to hike through at-risk old-growth forests and swim in the Salmon River. Emerging from the Marble Mountain, Russian and Trinity Wildernesses, the Salmon River is an ecological legacy in northwest California. This major tributary of the Klamath River is one of the last undammed and undiverted rivers in the entire Klamath Basin. All legal appeals have been exhausted in our attempts to save over 500 acres of old-growth, including Spotted owl critical habitat, on the Salmon River in the Klamath National Forest. These spectacular old-growth forests may not be standing for much longer as the Knob timber sale may be auctioned off this summer. Please join us for a hike on August 20th to visit these forests before they are gone. Carpools will leave from Evo's Java Lounge in Ashland at 8:30am. For more info, or to RSVP, contact lesley [at] kswild.org or call 488.5789. Carpools will also leave from Arcata (contact EPIC at scott [at] wildcalifornia.org or Lindsey [at] wildcalifornia.org) and Orleans (contact Klamath Riverkeeper at southsiskiyou [at] riseup.net or the Klamath Forest Alliance at klam_watch [at] yahoo.com).
