Save the date: December 8, 2017 Volunteer Rendezvous

16 OCTOBER 2017 | MEDFORD, ORE. — From high in the Sky Lakes, to the lower Rogue River, our volunteers put their spare time into keeping our region’s backcountry trails alive. They hike into work sites for days at a time, sustain heat, cold, long days, and hard working conditions in their commitment to taking good care of the most remote lands in Jefferson State. Join us on December 8, 2017 from 7pm – 9pm to honor their commitment. Medford REI (85 Rossanley Drive) is hosting the event.

Hear some stories from 2017, meet the volunteers, and learn more about 2018 trips. Afterwards, head to RAM Brewery next door and pick up a cold one for a volunteer.

Sign up at the REI Website (click here), then join the conversation on the Facebook Events Page.

Our volunteers keep alive 225+ miles of trails throughout Jefferson State. If you hike in the region, it’s likely that you have used a trail our volunteers have worked on. Below are a few honorable mentions, but check out all of our trails (click here).

  • Pilot Rock Trail
  • Pacific Crest Trail between Pilot Rock and Greensprings Highway.
