What is it?
A private bus tour for the OBC of the Bull Run Watershed. There is a one mile hike (optional) to view the flora and fauna and learn how the Portland Water Bureau and US Forest Service work together to protect the watershed. You’ll walk through a dam built in 1929 and drive past one built in 1962. Lunch is on the shores of Bull Run Lake with spectacular views so bring a camera! Don’t forget to bring a sack lunch!

There is a quick stop at the Columbia South Shore Well too.
