Bend Wild Wednesday

Wild Wednesday with LeeAnn Kriegh

“Listening to Lookout Mountain”

Crow’s Feet Commons and Oregon Wild have teamed up to educate, and share tales of backcountry adventures told by members of our local community. As central Oregonians, many of us share a love for exploring mountains, rivers, deserts and other wild places.

The Wild Wednesday’s series is about giving local adventurers a stage to tell their stories and inspire the rest of us to embark on our own journey to experience wilderness.

On May 24th, local naturalist and author LeeAnn Kriegh will share insight on engaging your senses while experiencing the beautiful Lookout Mountain in the Ochoco National Forest. She will walk through the various animal species you can expect to hear as well as share some insight into the spectacular wildflowers that are starting to pop. There will be an opportunity to sign up for a guided hike up Lookout Mountain to see the flora and fauna first hand.

LeeAnn Kriegh is a Bend-based writer who devoted much of the past two years to researching and writing The Nature of Bend. Join us Wednesday, May 24th, 5:30-7:00pm at Crow’s Feet Commons to hear her story and enjoy the visual journey.

If you are an adventurer and want to share your story, please contact us and we will consider! For more information, please email
