JOSEPH — Wallowology in Joseph is keeping the county’s interest in the outdoors alive with lectures and outings into the summer months.

This Saturday, Jim Akenson and Mike Hansen will lead a bear hibernation outing. Those interested are asked to meet at 9 a.m. at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Enterprise Office parking lot, 65495 Alder Slope Road. Participants will take their own cars to a western larch den tree located off Highway 3. Driving will involve roughly 50 miles round trip, and it is a 10-minute hike from the vehicle to the den-tree. There will be a remote camera and the group will look for possible bear activity. Everyone should bring a day-pack with a lunch and water plus binoculars and a camera.
