A Walk in the Woods Picnic

Written by Admin. Posted in Columbia, General News, Membership News, OSWA Home Page, Statewide OSWA Events

Come Join Columbia County small woodlands for our 7-21-2018 summer picnic.

This year our host is the Dahlin Family out of Warren Oregon. They were gracious enough to invite us to their 170 acres for our summer picnic.

You will literally be taking a walk in the woods. Dick Dahlin has been busy building a trail with several bridges through his property. The walk will be over 1 mile long so please do not attempt if you are not up to a long (woods) walk. On your walk you will see a young (15 to 20 year old) Douglas fir mixed hardwood stand.

Dick is a retired forester and has established growth plots that have been maintained for several years. As you progress you will come to the Dahlins picnic/campground, further you will see Sly Creek (medium fish stream with previous beaver activity) and finally you will come out on their new (several years old) road with Sly Creek stream crossing. From there a short walk or ride to our catered lunch from Sunshine pizza.

For those not going on the walk covered seating will be available (to get out of the sun or rain)

How to get there: Follow the Tree Farm tour signs off of Highway 30 at Slavens Road then follow the signs to Oester road then to
