"Outings! We have outings! Next up: Spring Blanchard Mtn. / Oyster Creek hike on March 16th. Meet 10 am at the Fairhaven Park & Ride, west side of I-5 and Old Fairhaven Parkway (exit 250.) Hike is 7 - 8 miles RT with 1020 ft. elevation gain from the Chuckanut side. Contact: Terese VanAssche, trip leader, for more details and to sign up. Note: You must sign up to be on this trip - sign up @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Bring: lunch, at least 1 quart of water, and wear good hiking footwear. Bring or wear raingear, depending on the weather that day. The Oyster Creek drainage is fairly steep in places, and can get slick if wet or muddy. Hiking poles are useful. The Mt. Baker Group has worked on protecting the old-growth forests of Blanchard Mtn., the key habitat corridor from the Cascades to the Bay. These lands are run by DNR and subject to timber cuts. Working with DNR staff and Conservation Northwest, a protected area of Blanchard has been set aside from timber cutting, to protect the wildlife and habitat around Lily and Lizard lakes."
