Blue Mountain Land Trust: Strawberry Lake Scenic Photography Hike

Strawberry Lake, fed by melting winter snow, is set amongst towering pine trees in the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness. This hike is picturesque from trailhead to lake shore and affords the opportunity to capture a variety of plant and wildlife on camera.

Local photographer Ashley Stevick will lead hikers on this scenic tour and offer tips on how to best capture nature on camera – whether it be an up-close image of a single flower or an abstract image of fallen leaves. Ashley Stevick has been photographing and producing fine art images from national forests and wilderness areas for years, and her artwork is sold in several locations throughout the John Day area.

The Nature Conservancy: Juniper Hills Preserve Desert Wildflower Tour

The Nature Conservancy’s Juniper Hills Preserve serves as a vital migratory corridor for elk, antelope and other wildlife, and hosts a wide variety of wildflowers and grasses. Nestled between the Ochoco Mountains and the Maury Mountains, this remarkably diverse Central Oregon landscape is accented by ancient western juniper trees and features an exceptional array of John Day and Clarno "painted hills" formations.

Join preserve staff and volunteers on a hike through a 2017 burn site to view desert wildflowers and trek through the colored soils of Juniper Hills! We plan to hike about 3 miles on uneven terrain gaining about 500 feet in elevation, so hikers must be physically fit.
