#OptOutside: Opt to Act with Trailkeepers of Oregon – Tryon Creek

November 29 at 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

#OptOutside began as a moment that turned into a movement. Now it’s a mission. This Black Friday, Nov. 29, we’re kicking off a year of doing more for the environment we love. This year when we #OptOutside, we Opt to Act. On Black Friday we’re going to get out and work together to ensure that our favorite local areas continue to be accessible to all, allowing them to continue their crucial role in fostering our community’s connection to nature and inspiring each of us to fight for life outdoors together.




This event is geared toward folks in the southern areas around Portland. Join TKO and employees from the Tualitan REI to give some love to this wonderful trail system, right in the heart of the city. No experience necessary, our Crew Leaders will teach you everything you need to know.
