Just around the corner!

We can't wait to see you May 19-21 for Crew Leader College. We are back at North Bend this year and we can't wait to spend the weekend with you.

2023 is also WTA's 30th anniversary of the volunteer trail maintenance program, so you can expect some added fun, too!  Throughout the weekend we'll be taking videos to record your experiences as a volunteer with WTA. We'll also have designated time Saturday evening where you can share those stores with each other.

Back to North bend and other updates

  • We are back at North Bend! We’ll be utilizing Forest Service facilities for camping and showers, the elementary school for meals, classes and the morning talks, and local trails for our project sites.
  • The Saturday potluck is back (main course to be provided by WTA)!
  • We will be hosting an optional Friday evening social that is open to all attendees.  A chance to eat, drink, and be merry with your fellow leadership cohort!
  • We are excited to be inviting a few of our agency partners to share their expertise over the course of the weekend!
