The Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF), our partner in the Tillamook State Forest, is hosting a series of volunteer work parties for 2010.
These work parties focus on building new trails for hikers, equestrians and mountain bikers. Work parties are the 3rd Saturday of each month except for September (the September work party is the 2nd Saturday).
The March 20th, May 15th, July 17th and September 11th work parties focus on the Wilson River Trail Restoration.

This is a new trail construction project. Work will include clearing vegetation, excavation and grading. This trail is being build to a moderate standard for hiker, horse and mountain bike use. It is being constructed to the following specifications:
Trail Width: 30 inches - Full Bench

The project will require walking and working on steep uneven terrain and hiking off trail and on trail already built in order to access the work site.
