Paul Edison-Lahm and Evelyn Bennett will be leading this beginner/intermediate level hike and car tour of Mt. Tabor and Powell Butte. No knowledge of geology is necessary.
We will be starting early at the Mt. Tabor Visitors Center to beat the day’s heat and meet up with Friends of Mt. Tabor. We will encourage people to carpool from Mt. Tabor to Powell Butte. Bring a lunch!
This trip will fill up fast, so register now!
This year’s picnic will be held at Henry Hagg County Park, Pavilion C. Come join your GSOC friends for lunch in a lovely spot and hear Dr. Bill Orr speak about new developments in his books Pacific NW Geology and The Willamette Valley: An Environmental History. Books will be for sale at the picnic at a discounted price.
GSOC is requesting donations of $10 per head at the event and there is a $7 parking charge at the park. A senior parking pass is available for $5, but not on the day of the event. Some senior parking passes will be available at the July 12th lecture for $5 each. If you'd like the $5 pass, bring your cash on Friday the 12th or reply to this email.
Please bring a beverage as well as your contribution to the potluck. GSOC will provide the tablecloths, plates, flatware and cups. No registration is required.
