Volunteer with TKO

Be a keeper of trails with partners protecting lands.

Through out TKO’s history, we’ve found that one of the most symbiotic relationships we can develop is through helping land conservation partners with their trails management. Whether it be The Nature Conservancy, Friends of the Columbia Gorge, North Coast Land Conservancy or Lower Nehalem Community Trust – we can help one another in protecting our public access lands through partnering and doing what we each do best.

EAST COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE

Mosier Plateau and Rowen Crest are two of the gems of the eastern Gorge. Right on the edge of the Cascade’s rain-shadow, these classic scrub oak hikes host spectacular wildflowers in the spring and offer a chance at sunshine when all else is covered in clouds during the winter. With breathtaking views along every part of the trail, these special places see heavier traffic every year. We are committed to ensuring that the trails every visitor leaves their boot prints on are maintained and sustained in a way that can support their use. This will ensure that even as these treasures are discovered, the habitat around them remains protected.

BETTER TOGETHER

Places like Mosier and Rowena are only available to the public thanks to the tireless work of the Friends of the Columbia Gorge, and The Nature Conservancy. Their role as land trusts ensures that these precious habitats will remain protected for every generation in the future. TKO’s role as trail steward ensures that the trails you use to hike these wonderful areas are sustainable, low impact and consistently maintained. You can support these partnerships and continued access to protected lands by donating today!
