Volunteer with TKO! Camp Wilkerson

Post by Shoofly » September 16th, 2016, 4:27 am

Camp Wilkerson, Columbia County (with OET)
Saturday, October 15 & Sunday, October 16, 8:30 AM-3:30 PM

Join TKO and Oregon Equestrian Trails (OET) in building a hiker/horse bridge across a creek at Camp Wilkerson in Columbia County. Learn more about bridge construction and help complete this horse capable bridge!

On Saturday, we will be prepping the stringer log beams by removing bark, planning and leveling the tops, and notching railing locations. On Sunday, we will be installing the bridge deck and completing the bridge. Come for both days or just one! Any help is appreciated; bridge building experience not needed. There is free camping available if you want to come early Friday or stay over Saturday night. Work will be near the camp so not much hiking.

Camp Wilkerson is about half way between Portland and Astoria near Vernonia. There is a network of hiking and horse trails around the camp.
