Tom McCall Preserve Trail Work 
Tom McCall Preserve sits on a high promontory overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. Located between Hood River and The Dalles, it lies in the transition zone between the drier climate of eastern Oregon and the moist maritime climate of the west. We are rerouting the hiking trail to McCall Point and would love your help! Tasks include tread grading, seeding, trail construction, water bar cleaning and obliterating old trail. Come prepared for heavy lifting and digging on steep hillsides. This work is best suited for adults, but high school youth can join with their parents. 

Saturday, January 21 from 9am- 4pm: Register here

Saturday, February 18 from 9am- 4pm: Register here.
