Walk + Hike Shepherds


Do you love hiking and want to learn more about the natural history of Central Oregon? Then volunteer to become a Land Trust Hike Shepherd. What's a Hike Shepherds? Awesome volunteers who:

  • Help hike leaders ensure that hike participants have a great experience on their outing.
  • Help leaders with logistics (getting waivers signed, parking).
  • Help with some natural history (i.e. spot birds, ID flowers, etc)
  • Herd sheep! Bring up the rear of the hike and help keep the group together and safe.


This is an excellent opportunity to get outside and learn from our experts leaders, and it a great way for folks interested in being a Hike Leader to see how Land Trust Walks + Hikes work.  With more than 80 walks, hikes, and outings this year, we have lots of dates and subject areas to choose from!
