Project Information:

Join us for some family-friendly stewardship fun! In the spirit of the season, we encourage everyone to wear a costume or fun outfit. We’ll be using loppers and rakes to clear vegetation and debris. We will hike, learn about plants and do trail maintenance from 9-12PM and then have a picnic lunch. Please plan to arrive a few minutes before 9AM.

Hiking information:

From the parking area, we will hike a short distance onto the trail. More details will be available when the location for the event is confirmed.

COVID-19 Information:

**You will be asked to electronically sign the e-waiver for this event, provide proof of vaccination or recent negative COVID-19 test result, and perform a self-assessment health screening within the 24 hours preceding the event.** The crew leader for this event will verify that you have completed these requirements at the trailhead safety talk before the trail party begins. The registration confirmation and pre-event emails will contain further details and links.

What to bring:

  • Lunch
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Gardening or work gloves if you have them
  • While we do provide hard hats, we find they are often too large for younger children’s heads. We recommend bringing a bike helmet as a back up for kids ages 8 and under.

What to wear:

  • Boots (Open-toed shoes are not allowed)
  • Work gloves (some loaner gloves available)
  • Long sleeved shirts and pants.
  • Rain gear, insulating layers, sun protection, etc. as appropriate for the weather
  • TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses


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. 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 and we express gratitude to these tribes and their descendants for being the original and continuing stewards of these spaces.

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 that include 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.
