FREE RANGER-GUIDED SNOWSHOE WALK AT CRATER LAKE
Dec
15
to Apr 28

FREE RANGER-GUIDED SNOWSHOE WALK AT CRATER LAKE

In an average winter, Crater Lake National Park receives 43 feet of snow! Ranger-led snowshoe hikes are a fun way to explore this winter wonderland while learning how plants, animals, and people survive the harsh conditions.

This winter, snowshoe hikes will be offered on weekends and holidays from December 8 through April 28, and every day from December 15 through January 6. They start at 1:00 pm, last two hours, and cover 1 to 2 miles of moderate-to-strenuous terrain. They don’t follow a trail—the hike is an off-trail exploration through the forests and meadows along the rim of Crater Lake.

No previous snowshoeing experience is necessary. Snowshoes are provided free of charge, and there is no cost for the tour (apart from the winter entrance fee of $15 per vehicle).

Participants should be at least 8 years old, be in good physical health, and come prepared with warm clothing and water-resistant footwear. The walks take place rain or shine (or snow). Pets are not allowed on the hike.

Space on each tour is limited, and advance reservations are required. For more information and to sign up, call the park’s visitor center at 541-594-3100. The visitor center is open daily except on December 25.

Organized groups (such as scout troops, hiking clubs, and church groups) may be able to arrange for a separate tour, staff permitting. Call to check on available dates.

BITE OF BANDON CULINARY SHOWCASE & AUCTION

Tickets $35 each. Tables of 8 may be purchased by contacting the Youth Center. This is an "over 21" event.

This popular annual "over 21" event showcases 15-18 local restaurants and purveyors to benefit the Bandon Community Youth Center, showcasing their best "bites" to attendees during the silent and live auctions. Founded in 1998, the Bandon Community Youth Center mission statement was updated in 2014, "To provide opportunities for youth and families to learn, grow, and experience success." The center currently runs "After School Homework Help" at their facility M-Th, and with a grant from the Oregon Community Foundation provides after school math tutoring at the local middle school for grades 4-5 and 7-8, also M-Th. Family engagement activities were added this year, including a Pollinator Planting Day, where families could enjoy a free lunch, learn about pollinators, and pot their own plants to take home. Research shows that students are more likely to experience academic success with peer mentors and when families are involved. In summer months the center provides a series of summer camps with focus on STEAM and outdoor activities. The Bite of Bandon is the major fundraiser of the year for this organization featuring generous donations from local, regional, and national businesses and organizations in the auctions, ranging from local shops and city utilities to gift certificates, to Disney Park Hopper Passes for 4, and more. Tickets are available February 1 from the Bandon Mercantile in Old Town and Bandon True Value/Radio Shack counter.
