Project Overview:

We will spend the night near Linney and Draw Creeks, and continue our work in the morning by heading towards Kinzel Creek and clearing logs near the camping area. On day 3 we will start heading back to our vehicles clearing the remaining logs we passed on the way in.

This is a self-supported event. Volunteers will need to carry all their backpacking gear plus tools. We will be following Leave No Trace principles. These will be long days of hiking, please consider your physical limits before signing up for this 3 day backpacking event.

Bring your personal saw kit (wedges, axe, pruning saws, loppers, etc}. We will also carry tread tools (pick mattock, other…).

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TKO recognizes that the trails we work on travel through the traditional lands of many Indigenous tribes. In every corner of what we now call Oregon, these people were forced to cede their land, their home, to the US government at various times from 1853 – 1871. We are privileged to be here today & express gratitude to the descendants of these tribes for being the original stewards of this land.

EQUITY & INCLUSION: TKO seeks to make Oregon’s trails a place where people can go to connect with nature & one another. Not everyone feels safe & welcome in the outdoors due to racism, bias & hate. We commit to being part of the solution to change that. Conduct, speech, or expressions that target individuals or groups will not be tolerated by TKO, regardless of whether they are based on age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, geographic origin, language, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.

PERSONAL SAFETY: Your physical & emotional safety is our number one priority. If a person’s actions or comments make you feel uncomfortable/unsafe – interrupt directly, tell a crew leader &/or complete the post-event survey.
