Profiles in Volunteering

Do you recognize these troublemakers? You have probably seen them out on the trail, blowing leaves, patching gravel, and keeping culverts and ditches flowing. Each of these volunteers donates 8 hours a week to maintain and improve our trail system. Together, they donated almost 800 hours to the College Forests recreation program in 2012. Seriously, they are a hard-working and safe team, they get a lot done, and they never seem to lose their sense of humor!

Ryan Brown starts as new recreation manager

Ryan Brown is the new recreation manager for College Forests, replacing Chris Jackson. She has worked for the Forest Service for the last 13 years, first on the Willamette National Forest as a recreation and wilderness ranger on Detroit Ranger District, then later as a recreation planner, wilderness trail crew leader, and volunteer coordinator on the Middle Fork Ranger District. Please welcome Ryan to Corvallis!
