Each year The Southern Oregon Land Conservancy comes together to celebrate the generous support of their members. The member picnic is hosted at the Rogue River Preserve spending the afternoon enjoying a short hike or site tour, and complimentary lunch. SOLC also uses this opportunity to bestow the Conservation Award, honoring an individual whose commitment to conservation has had a major impact in Southern Oregon. This year the picnic is on June 1 and is open to all SOLC members. Food, fun, hikes, music -- Come celebrate, meet new friends, relax by the river and explore the magnificent Rogue River Preserve. RSVPs open in May 2019.
This will be an easy to moderate hike of less than 3 miles amongst Legacy Oregon white oak and a mixed conifer woodland.

Please bring water, a lunch or snacks, bug repellant, sunscreen, your camera and binoculars if you have them. Over 80 bird species have been identified on this property. Let's Get Outdoors together!
