Annual Hiking Day
We share our love of Mt. Adams by sponsoring an annual “Hiking Day” during the summer. The hikes are free and open to the public. View or download a detailed description of the hikes on our Facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/Friends-of-Mount-Adams-222845041110341/
One-day conferences (2011 – 2014)
Since 2011, we’ve sponsored occasional one-day, science-based Mount Adams conferences, which are always open to the general public. Invited speakers address topics related to an annual conference theme; i.e., Mt. Adams’ physical environment, culture, history, natural hazards, and natural resources management. Conference partners have included the Forest Service, Yakama Nation, and local non-profit environmental groups. Tables are available for speakers and local non-profit environmental groups to display literature related to Mt. Adams (FOMA pre-approval required).
So far, we’ve held three highly successful conferences for the general public, both at the Trout Lake School—an appropriately fine venue at the base of the mountain. Our first conference, with the theme, “Mount Adams in a Warming Climate,” was held on Nov. 11, 2011 and attracted 180 people. For a summary and speakers’ abstracts, go here. Our second conference, on Nov. 3, 2012, focused on “Flora and Fauna of Mount Adams”, and 150 were in attendance Read the 2012 speakers’ abstracts. A selection of the 2012 conference photos are shown on our gallery page. OUR THIRD, ONE-DAY CONFERENCE WAS HELD ON MAY 3rd, 2014, AND IT WAS A BIG SUCCESS, with about 120 folks participating. Our theme was: “Celebrating 50 years of Wilderness: A Legacy for the Future”, paying homage to the monumental National Wilderness Act of 1964. For a summary of the conference, click here.
