About this event

This event page is solely for registration for the North Umpqua Trail workshop. Find more info and register for the full Summit at https://outdoorsummit.brand.live/c/home.

In this workshop we will visit two trailheads and one recreation site along a portion of the North Umpqua Trail. At those sites we will look at damage from the Archie Creek Fire of 2020 and talk about how we will collaborate to restore the trail so that it can be opened to the public. We will also look at unique opportunities that the fire damage and subsequent stabilization have made available that will improve the recreation opportunities in the future and finally we will discuss the collaboration process with other entities like Douglas County, Pacific Power, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), the USFS and other local partners. We will also spend a small amount of time on the North Umpqua Trail.

Learning Outcomes: How to inventory the trail to determine specific needs for reconstruction. How collaborating with partners can improve the process. Sources for funding and completing the work.
