Congratulations Class of 2018

The 2018 Big Bend Trail Skills College was made possible thanks to the Bureau of Land ManagementU.S. Forest ServiceBackcountry Horsemen of Oregon, and Oregon State Parks. These sponsors and partners welcomed 40 volunteers to play in the dirt and learn new skills near Ashland, Oregon. Volunteers chose from courses like Brushing & ScoutingBasic Saw Crew Training, and Waterbars & Checks.Thank you to the volunteer instructors, partners and staff for the great selection, and thank you to the local volunteer community for coming out to learn these skills.

Can’t wait for next year?

Don’t forget, you can learn new trail maintenance skills by volunteering on a PCTA trail crew any time. Most crews do not require any previous trail maintenance experience. Knowledgeable and experienced crew leaders are on site to teach you the necessary skills. Visit the online project schedule, PCTA’s Southern Oregon Rockers or PCTA’s NorCal Trail Crew on Facebook to find PCT maintenance projects in Northern California and Southern Oregon.
