Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Martha Lussenhop for a history wander at Camp Polk Meadow Preserve. The meadow has a long history as a crossroads for Native Americans, explorers, soldiers, and settlers. Discover how people over the centuries have used natural resources from this special place for food and shelter. Today it is known as a local nature preserve that is home to a variety of plant and wildlife species and is one of Central Oregon’s birding hot spots. We'll walk around Hindman Springs to see historic sites, making stops along the way to learn how the meadow is being restored to create a healthier place for native plants, fish, wildlife, and our community. Our walk will finish with a visit to the Camp Polk cemetery. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.
