Information Meetings
Work outdoors and build skills with the Pacific Northwest Trail Association!  There are multiple ways to get out on the trail and make a difference: from professional trail crew job opportunities, to volunteer events, including work-based learning experiences. Paid crew member positions are an adventurous summer job and a great first step on a career path in conservation & natural resource management, including a career as a trail leader with the PNTA. If you can't commit to a full summer on trail crew, but still want to get out there and gain hands-on experience, you could join a work-based learning project or participate in volunteer trail crew work parties. Explore the region, stay fit, learn new skills, meet new people, and make a difference by helping to build and preserve the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail. Join them on May 10 for a virtual meeting to learn more about what the PNTA does, and how to become part of this community of outdoors enthusiasts & trail advocates.
