Dry Creek Falls Hike
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Other (See Other Details for more information)

This hike offers something for everyone, a waterfall, a huge suspension bridge and a nice view of Coast Range forest. The trail is wide and well maintained. The only flaw may be that its elevation backwards; you have a nice stroll down, then you need to climb back out. The turn-around hike culminates at the spectacular 75 foot Dry Creek waterfall. Along the way, you will encounter interesting lava boulders. The hike is 4.2 miles in and out and is rated moderate.

Join us in excavating a Civil War era fort, learning about archaeological field and lab methods, touring the historic Franz-Dunn house and the original commander's house, and witnessing a civil war reenactment!

1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.
