In case the signs blow over, here are the directions for the last couple of miles: Get off I-80 at exit 104 (Earlham); take "I" avenue north (away from Earlham -- for 'avenue' think 'country road') and bear right at fork in road and stay on I avenue for a little over a mile, then turn right on Bear Creek Road (bunch of cedar trees on corner) and the Bear Creek Meeting will be about 400 feet or so on the right. Plenty of parking.

The Bear Creek Friends Meeting has a nice photo of the building.
