Tall Trees

Banks High School AP biology students use a clinometer to measure the height of Opal Creek's trees.

Gotcha!

A student poses with his Opal Creek catch. This amphibian was identified streamside and returned to the cold waters from which he was taken.

Opal Creek Bulletin

pedestrian bridge

Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center has installed a pedestrian bridge that crosses the Battle Ax Creek to restore access through Jawbone Flats deeper into the watershed. This new bridge is just downstream from the old one, above the confluence of Battle Ax and Opal creeks. We are granting permission to the public to use this bridge for recreational purposes only at its own risk. Hike on!
