Project Thunderbird

Project Thunderbird

In 2017, we launched Project Thunderbird with the support of donors like you. The primary goals of the project include the installation of iconic Thunderbird trail markers and other wayfinding signage at key locations along the Pacific Northwest Trail.

During the following seasons, we put your gifts to work. We restored damaged tread, relocated sections of trail and installed Thunderbird trail markers to donors to the campaign.

Use the map below to explore our online register of new trail markers installed on the PNT in honor of Project Thunderbird donors. Our trail community helps to make all of this possible.
