Dollar Lake Fire recovery hike Aug. 3

Two summers ago, we all watched the north side of Mount Hood burn. How would you like to get a first-hand look at the recovery of this fire-ravaged forest?

Join U.S. Forest Service Silviculturist Whitney Olsker, Assistant Fire Management Officer Leo Segovia and the Hood River Watershed Group on a hike through the Dollar Lake Fire burn area, Aug. 3.

Through this 6-mile hike, participants will learn about different fire behaviors, discuss the firefighting efforts and impacts and explore the aftermath and recovery.

The tour will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will cost $17. Transportation will be provided.

Space is limited, so register today with Hood River Community Education online at or by calling 541-386-2055.
