Over 100 people showed up to participate in our annual Independence Day Parade in the Silver Falls Campground! Spirits were high and decorations abounded as we snaked our way through the campground, joined by many of our community partners – staff from the Silver Falls Lodge and Conference Center, the YMCA Camp Silver Creek, and the Drakes Crossing Volunteer Fire Department, and a special appearance by our Junior Ranger mascot, JR Beaver. Thanks to all who joined us – we hope to see you all again next year!
44 visitors joined Ranger Steve Hernandez on a hike under South & Lower South Falls enjoying our fascinating natural history along the way. We hope to see you all next year so you can join in on the fun and collect your [or another!] First Day Hike Pin!
Salem’s Statesman Journal also attended the hike and posted more great pictures:
This year’s Christmas Festival at Silver Falls was another big hit! Well over 5,000 visitors braved the weather and enjoyed the weekend festivities.
A HUGE thanks goes to our many dedicated volunteers, partners, and staff.
The Statesman Journal also came up and graciously covered the activities: Statesman Journal Link
