The Fremont Tier continues to hold its intrigue—the most remote of our Stewardship Campouts also was the first to fill up. Thirty-five hard working volunteers cleared and improved roughly 130 miles of the Oregon Timber Trail over the course of our 6 day event.
Personally, I got tired with just “using” trails. I’ve been riding mountain bikes on and off for 30 years. It was time to give back a little more. Luckily for all of us, the Oregon Timber Trail is 670 miles long and much of it is remote and in certain sections are in disrepair.
Come on down! No experience required! That’s right, you just need a smile, a good attitude, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The Oregon Timber Trail Alliance stewardship events aren’t just about clearing trail. They are also about educating folks on trail maintenance techniques you can take back and use at your local trails (or along the OTT!).
The weekend kicked off with an incredibly thorough First Aid, CPR, and Bleeding Control certification from our board member Kim McCormack and partners at Cascade Training Center. As Friday night rolled in, and Horse Creek Lodge rolled out the spread they had prepared for us we began to realize how spoiled we were going to be all weekend.
Interested in joining one of the Oregon Timber Trail Alliance's upcoming sawyer certification events but you broke open your piggy bank to register and a couple snickers wrappers fell out? Time to apply for a scholarship!
It's the new year and we're gearing up for a busy twelve months on the Oregon Timber Trail. A lot of you have been asking about our popular Stewardship Campouts and Sawyer Certifications so we've been busy getting all our ducks in a row. Here is our 2018 calendar of events covering a broad spectrum from cooking, in the backcountry, to social panel events, to weekend-long certifications. We hope this series is inspiring and educational and we're looking forward to sharing these experiences with you.
