PCTA’s Ian Nelson on the radio talking about the drought and more

When Jefferson Public Radio in Ashland, Oregon, asked us to do an on-air segment, we knew just the right person for the job. Our Big Bend Regional Representative, Ian Nelson, lives in Medford and knows the PCT inside and out.

In his 16-minute interview, Surviving a Hot, Dry Summer On The PCT, Ian crams a lot into the conversation. You’ll hear about the drought, the best PCT information sources, our role in managing the trail, Wild, safety and more. Take a listen.
