Eastern Washington outdoor opportunities
Volunteer outdoor work is a fun, fulfilling way to get outside and give something back to the trails in wild places. Remember, wildlife use these trails too!
Spend time outside on the trails
Help restore trails and lands in the Colville National Forest and Salmo-Priest Wilderness and surrounding wild areas. Along with our self-led hike series, volunteer trail work is a fun, fulfilling way to get out in nature with old and new friends, learn about wilderness traditions and tools, and give something back to the trails that make it possible for so many of us to enjoy our treasured wild places and wildlife.
Conservation Northwest will not be leading hikes this summer, but watch for other guided hiking opportunities on our calendar, or go on a self-led hike!
Conservation Northwest offers instructions for eight hikes to take you through the wild areas of the Columbia Highlands. They are borrowed from Craig Romano's book, Columbia Highlands: Exploring Washington's Last Frontier. You can find the hikes here.
Trail Work Parties
This year we are recruiting Conservation Northwest supporters to sign up for Washington Trails Association trail work parties in the Columbia Highlands. WTA is the Evergreen State's premier hiking and trail advocacy group keeping our trails in good shape around the state.
Visit our calendar to find a work party that works for you!
Consider signing up for one of WTA's multi-day trail work parties in the Salmo-Priest Wilderness Area on the Colville National Forest in northeast Washington.
