Project Information:

TKO is happy to offer a learning opportunity to volunteers and professionals seeking training in trail construction/maintenance, leadership and project management topics.

TKO Scout School: Developing Trail Eyes Lab is geared towards people interested in learning how best to identify trail problems and propose solutions that volunteer leaders and/or agency professionals can use to make project proposals for consideration by land managers.

  • TKO’s methodology for identifying trail problems, collecting data in the field, and building a succinct project proposal.
  • TKO’s culture of safety, inclusiveness, and quality of stewardship for the volunteer experience and the trails we keep.
  • A guided assessment hike.

Hiking information:

This section of the OCT stretches between Rocky Creek and Fogarty Creek along an existing power line corridor. Areas of the trail are in disrepair and need to be assessed.

Expect some downed trees/slash and uneven ground. We will hike the 2 mile stretch down and back (roughly 4 miles total) to make our assessment.

  • Any medications or emergency supplies you may need
  • Sunscreen + insect repellent
  • A pack to bring all of this with you on trail
  • Need gear? TKO has clothes, boots, camping gear, and more available for loan. Reach out to volunteers@trailkeepersoforegon.org to let us know how we can help!

What to wear:

  • Boots (Please wear something sturdy that will protect your toes from sharp tools. Tennis shoes are not recommended. Open-toed shoes will not be allowed.)
  • Work gloves (loaner gloves available)

  • Rain gear, insulating layers, sun protection, etc. as appropriate for the weather

Directions will be supplied to registrants via email 48 hours before event.

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

ACCOMMODATION REQUESTS: TKO seeks to make our events inclusive of people of all backgrounds and abilities. If you would like to discuss potential accommodations to allow for your participation in this event, please click here to complete a short Google survey. TKO staff will then contact you to discuss options. Please note: available accommodations will vary by event and typically need to be requested a minimum of two weeks in advance. If you have any questions, please contact TKO Stewardship Manager Lindsay McIntosh-Tolle at lindsay.mcintosh@trailkeepersoforegon.org.

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 or welcome in the outdoors due to issues like racism, bias, and hate. We commit to being part of the solution to this problem and to enact change. Conduct, speech, or expressions that target any individual or group 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, socioeconomic status.

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

While TKO no longer requires masking/vaccination for its events, we do support those who feel masking is necessary for their own safety. We ask participants to respect the health of folks who wear masks by distancing or wearing a mask while in close proximity.
