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.

Join Trailkeepers of Oregon staff and volunteers for an on-trail training in public engagement and education on a variety of wilderness topics including Leave No Trace, permits, hiking etiquette and more!
