Join KLLT and Klamath County Museum Manager Todd Kepple for a once-in-a-lifetime outing to Buck Island on June 18.
Group size will be limited to 20 so reserve your spot now!
Buck Island is privately owned with a rich cultural and ecological history. During the outing, participants will learn about this history and will get to see some remnants of it, including old homesites, petroglyphs, oak woodlands, and more.
The group will meet at the boat ramp at Cove Point at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 18. To get to the island, participants will need to boat approximately one mile. All watercraft are required to have an invasive species permit.
To get to Cove Point from Klamath Falls, take Hwy 97 north for approximately 5 miles until you get to Cove Point Rd. Turn left and follow this road for about 1.5 miles. When you get to a Y in the road near the lake, take a right and then another immediate right. This will take you to the boat ramp.
The outing will last about 4 hours so be sure to bring plenty of water, a snack, sunscreen, and bug spray. Rattlesnakes are also known to inhabit the island so make sure you wear appropriate shoes and clothing.
We hope to see you there!
