Trailkeepers of Oregon (TKO) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect and enhance the Oregon hiking experience through advocacy, stewardship, outreach and education.
Bottom Line for Portland
People love Portland for its access to the outdoors, and the scenic wonders of Oregon are a part of life here. TKO turns trail users into trail stewards, helping make these connections to nature last and bringing trails back better than ever before. This year, TKO inspired nearly 2,000 volunteers to stewards hiking trails at over 200 events across the state.
“I signed up for my first trail party last fall, motivated by the Eagle Creek fire and a desire to help build back Gorge trails when the time was right. By the end of my first trail party, I was hooked! I knew I wanted to commit to being a part of Trailkeepers and its future.”
—Natalie Ferraro, TKO’s Engagement Coordinator
