Spring Hike: Exploring Fire Ecology and Fire History in the Ashland Watershed
Ashland Forest Resiliency Partners will lead a hike of the Red Queen Trail at the end of April, 2018.

Learn more about how forest restoration is conceived and implemented for the diverse habitats in Ashland’s watershed. Hikers will meet at the Lithia Park Band Shell and shuttle to the Upper White Rabbit Trailhead, then hike down The Red Queen trail.
