A Wilderness Ambassador Hike is for Wilderness Ambassador volunteers and anyone else interested in TKO’s Ambassador programs to join a current Wilderness Ambassador Mentor on an outing! If there is more than one mentor out in a day, there will be separate tickets for each individual.
Mentor and location: Mike Matthews, Salmon River Trail
Wilderness Ambassador Program Information:
Wilderness Ambassadors are a special type of volunteer. Experts at public engagement and education, these adventurous folks head out on some of the most beloved wilderness trails on Mt Hood and in the Columbia River Gorge to share Leave No Trace principles, hiking etiquette, and trail stewardship with trail users.
These volunteers also gather data on physical and social trail conditions, perform some lights stewardship projects, and help to train new Wilderness Ambassadors as they enter the program.
