Saturday Presentation: Protecting, Preserving, and Promoting the Pacific Crest Trail

Join us Saturday (specific time to be announced) for a 30-minute presentation about the PCTA. We’ll talk about how our mission is captured by “P3,” which means to protect, preserve, and promote the PCT. Through P3, we are teaming up with hikers and corporate partners to raise awareness of both how invaluable the PCT experience is, and how vital it is to leave no trace along the trail. We’ll talk about the PCTA, our partners, the issues facing the trail and what we’re doing to benefit the trail.
