Wilderness Ambassador Training

April 29 at 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

This day long training covers all the specifics of the Wilderness Ambassador program.

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.

This day long training will cover all the specifics of the Wilderness Ambassador program. Topics covered will include safety procedures, advanced public engagement techniques, hike scheduling, and data reporting.

Volunteers are required to take the online Trail Ambassador training in addition to this in-person training. You can find more information about all the steps involved in becoming a Wilderness Ambassador here.
