KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – A presentation on oak trees native to the Upper Klamath Basin will be offered at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15, on the Skillet Handle Trail at the Running Y Ranch Resort.
The oak woodlands walk is cosponsored by Klamath County Museum and the Klamath Tree League. The outing will include a brief presentation on oak woodlands, as well as an opportunity to gather acorns and a demonstration on how to plant them.
“This year is the best we’ve seen for acorn production in several years,” said museum director Todd Kepple. “It’s fun to sprout acorns, and extremely beneficial for wildlife to grow more oak trees.”
Participants can join a car caravan at the Running Y Lodge at 1:45, or meet at the parking lot beside the Skillet Handle trailhead. The walk will cover about one mile over level ground, and will last about an hour.
Sunday’s walk is free and open to anyone interested. Dogs on leash are welcome. For more information call the Klamath County Museum at (541) 882-1000.
