Evening: SE Salem History/Nature

Join us for a hiking tour through the varied history of SE Salem. We will begin along the West Fork of Pringle Creek meandering through the Pringle Creek Community, then skirting the old site of the Fairview Training Center, past the area where Salem has plans for a new Fairview city park. At that point we will skirt the Fairview Industrial Park (past the old Hillcrest School for Girls) on the way to enjoy the loop around the Nature Trail at the Fairview Wetland Project. Pre-registration is not necessary. On-street parking should be available at the meeting site on Madrona Ct. SE. Location is off Madrona Ave SE and is the first street to the west of Fairview Industrial Drive SE. Luck would have it that we will end the hike across the street from the Gilgamesh Brewing Company where we can replenish lost fluids and minerals.  Moderate Pace.
