Learn about the forest ecology in the Olympic rain shadow of our native forest. Join Friends of Fort Flagler for an in-person hike and discussion at Fort Flagler and learn about our forest and plants. We’ll start at the lower campground and hike a loop which should take about 1.5 hours. During the hike, we’ll discuss the trees and plants, as we encounter them.
