Welp, we’re almost a month into 2018 and the pace of all the good things continues.
I’m over two years into my job to establish the Oregon Desert Trail, and it’s still incredible to me that I am in a position to use all my hiking experiences in this job, and am seeing results.
It will be another busy year of presentations around the state, leading trail maintenance trips, and helping hikers get out on the trail.
Interested in joining me on one of the trips? Here are the 5 outings I’ll be leading this year. Registration opens for these and almost 30 other ONDA stewardship trips on February 19 here.
