Stargazing & Natural Night Skies

August 18, 5:30–6:30 PM (MDT)

Stargazing is a fun, all-ages, and life-long activity, especially as we live in an especially spectacular natural dark skies location of the nation! In this 1-hour online presentation, Sammy will teach about the night sky, stargazing techniques, and specific constellations.

 

The event is free, but you must register to receive the Zoom link.

Owyhee Geology Field Trip Series

Next trip: August 28, 8 AM–5 PM (MDT)

Like geology, rocks, and landscape formation history? This is the perfect trip series for you. Join us for one or more sessions—or even all of them!

We'll cover plenty of basics, make firsthand observations and interpretations, and work with previous mapping to supplement. Great for rock hounds interested in geological history. Ages 8 and up are welcome!

Yoga in the Wild Owyhee: Three Fingers

October 24, 10AM–2PM (MST)

We’re celebrating the birth of FOTO! Since October 2015, this organization has worked hard to protect, explore, and steward the beautiful lands we call the Owyhee. We'll meet at Succor Creek Campground, then drive to the Three Fingers trailhead. We’ll hike to the base of Three Fingers (about 1 mile) and have our yoga class. FOTO will provide some light refreshments, and then we’ll hike back.

PCT Days

August 20–22

We're excited to be heading back to PCT Days as one of the few non-profits invited to attend! We'll be doing what we do best—chatting with wonderful folks about the Owyhee and why it's such an incredible place. There will be tons of outdoor gear vendors, and even a raffle! Come by and say hello.

FSS: Succor Creek State Natural Area

September 4, 10 AM–2 PM (MDT)

We're back at Succor Creek in September to take care of our adopted park. Come hang out and enjoy the outdoors!

Meet us at the Succor Creek Campground to pick up your trash collecting gear. No sign-up required, so come and go as you please.

Highway 95 Clean-up

August 27, 5:30–8PM (MDT)

When we adopted our section of US Route 95, we agreed to give it a good clean-up at least 3 times a year. There are so many places in the Owyhee that need our stewardship and love—they don't all fit into the First Saturdays Stewardship series! To beat the heat, we're doing an evening clean-up. Come out to join us!

Annual Three Forks Trip

October 8–10

The Owyhee River was designated Wild & Scenic on October 19, 1984, and this trip is all about celebrating its protection! We'll hike around the confluence of the West Little Owyhee River and Antelope Creek as we explore the outstandingly remarkable value that a Wild & Scenic river has to offer. Enjoy learning about the ecology, geologic features, scenic beauty, and wildlife.

Birding & Botany

A successful trip to North Fork for our first time going birding and studying botany. It was a chilly one, yes, but it was so worth it for the critters and incredible sights we saw.
