Join Trailkeepers of Oregon and Base Camp Brewing as we work on a brand new segment of the Oregon Coast Trail from Neahkahnie Mountain to Nehalem Road in Manzanita!! Participants in this trail party will be entered to win a Hydroflask growler filled with beer from Base Camp brewing as a part of our Legacy Builders campaign. 


Plan to hike less than a mile to the work area and work using hand digging tools, loppers, and hand saws. We prioritize safety and fun over quantity of work accomplished and encourage people to try different things and work at a comfortable pace. No experience is necessary — you’ll be working with experienced crew leaders who will teach you all you need to know. 


What to bring:
• Plenty of water
• Snacks
• Lunch


What to wear:


• Boots (Please wear something sturdy that will protect your toes from sharp tools. Tennis shoes are not recommended!)
• Work gloves (loaner gloves available)
• Long sleeved shirts and pants.
• Rain gear as appropriate for the weather
• TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses


Directions: Detailed directions will be provided via email 2 days before the work party.
