May 9, 2011

This weekend, as a part of the UO Survival Center‘s Forest Action Month, NEST is holding an overnight climb training and camp out. Located near the site of a the former Straw Devil treesit (which was saved thanks to a combination of the sit and red tree vole surveys conducted by NEST volunteers), it is also within quick walking distance of a natural Hot Springs.

We will be camping, learning basic tree climbing, and exploring the site of one the most intense forest defense campaigns in Oregon’s history.

Please bring your own camping gear, weather-appropriate clothing (it may be cold and/or rainy! or… maybe not!), and climbing gear (if you have it!). No experience is necessary. Further details and directions available to those who request. For rides out from Portland, please email
