Our botanical garden of trees in Portland is great place to learn about forests on an intimate scale. Join environmental educator Roland Begin for a guided tour through ‘forest time.’ On this free tour through the trees, we’ll learn about the importance of fire and other disturbances to the health of Pacific Northwest forests. We’ll also look at specific trees and plants which are indicators of ecological succession following fire events.
Public tours are held rain or shine. Dress for the weather, and wear comfortable shoes for walking on trails. The route is approximately 1 mile and will include some ups and downs along the way. Most of the tour route will travel on well-graded packed dirt or gravel trails.
Masks are no longer required for outdoor programs in Portland parks. If you are feeling any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay safe and stay home.
Fire and Forest Health in the Pacific Northwest is a free guided tour, but registration is required (group size is limited). Meet at the Hoyt Arboretum Visitor Center.
