Help us build another fabulous summit program! We welcome and encourage proposals from the full diversity of our Oregon outdoor recreation community:

  • from agency staff, volunteers, academics, tourism partners, and private sector professionals, from urban trails to wilderness, from motorized and non-motorized perspectives, hunters and anglers, and land and water recreation-related topics,

  • from all cultural backgrounds, and from all corners of Oregon and those with lessons to share from beyond our state’s borders.

The 2023 Summit will take place Thursday-Saturday, November 2-4, at The Mill Hotel, owned by the Coquille Indian Tribe, and in surrounding areas on Oregon's Southern Coast, traditional lands of the Coquille Indian Tribe, Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians, the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians, and other indigenous bands. The summit combines fun and high impact in-person networking opportunities with conference programming on the important issues of the day, educational content, trails stewardship work parties, and in-field tours and workshops.

The 2023 summit will bring together Oregon’s outdoor community to learn, build relationships, and find solutions to the challenges we face in developing and elevating outdoor recreation opportunities to best serve Oregon communities and celebrate and protect our natural, cultural, and historic wonders. The Summit seeks to accelerate efforts to: 

  • connect Oregonians of all backgrounds and abilities to the outdoors and increase health equity

  • aid in recovery of Oregon communities through outdoor recreation partnerships

  • address the impacts of climate change on outdoor recreation and build climate resilience

  • build a culture of environmental and cultural stewardship and healthy recreation

  • provide an off-street network of trails for recreating and traveling within and between Oregon communities

  • attract a wide range of visitors that contribute to Oregon’s urban and rural economies

  • support sustainable entrepreneurship and a thriving  outdoor recreation economy that reduces economic disparities
