In Kind Value of Volunteer Time

Oregon’s trails need upkeep and care. That’s where we come in.

Volunteer with Us

Almost all of today’s hiking trails were built more than 80 years ago.

Almost all of them are currently maintained by volunteers.

Explosive trail use and a lack of funding for trail maintenance is a real threat to our favorite trails.

In 2007, a group of concerned hikers founded Trailkeepers of Oregon. Our work takes the form of trail maintenance projects and advocacy work to restore proper funding to a resource so beneficial and beloved by Oregonians.

Backed by the generosity of hundreds of donors and volunteers, Trailkeepers of Oregon is committed to making sure everyone has access to Oregon’s most special places for years to come.

For the months of September, October and November, I worked in the Columbia River Gorge, aiding in ongoing trail restoration efforts. […]
