Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Stacey Forson for a tour of one of our newest conservation projects, Paulina Creek Preserve! With ponderosa and lodgepole pine forests, wet and dry meadows, and 3.7 miles of Paulina Creek, the Preserve helps mitigate the impacts of climate change, provides habitat for a wide range of wildlife (from frogs and fish to songbirds and bats), and will soon help connect the local community to the outdoors. Learn more about the Preserve and the Land Trust’s vision for its future. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.
