We work hard every day to protect the Pacific Northwest Trail. We maintain the trail, we build new connections, and engage local communities in their recreational resources.
In 2016 we’ll keep doing all that and will be focusing on a few timely priority projects.
Our primary projects for 2016:
- Working on the Comprehensive Plan for future management of the Pacific Northwest Trail
The U.S. Forest Service is leading the development of the long-term management plan for the Pacific Northwest Trail. We’ll be working with the U.S. Forest Service and other federal agencies (like the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, and United States Fish and Wildlife Service) to make sure the Pacific Northwest Trail experience is protected for the enjoyment of current and future generations of Pacific Northwest explorers.
- Increase participation with our youth programs
For over 15 years, Service, Knowledge, Youth (SKY) program has worked hard in trail communities to engage youth in trail work through a blend of paid employment and volunteer community service. We see the value that SKY provides to the community and are determined to continually improve the program.
