Nature Sketching & Journaling – Table Rock Hike Saturday, May 6, 2017, 9:00 a.m. at Lower Table Rock

The iconic Upper and Lower Table Rocks—formed seven million years ago by a volcanic eruption—are prominent reminders of the rich natural and cultural heritage found in the Rogue Valley. For thousands of years the Takelma Indians called Table Rocks their home, and early settlers hiked to their summits in long skirts and full suits. Today more than 50,000 people each year connect with nature and history while walking their trails. These “Islands in the Sky” are designated as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern and an America’s Great Outdoors site to protect their diverse habitats, expansive views, abundant wildlife and a wealth of wildflowers, including the extremely rare Dwarf-wooly Meadowfoam that grows nowhere else in the world.
