Save the date for the 2022 Summit, October 27th-29th on Mt. Hood!
The 2022 Summit will primarily take place Thursday-Saturday, October 27th-29th, at Mt. Hood Oregon Resort and surrounding areas on the west side of Mt. Hood, Wy’East, traditional lands of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, and other indigenous bands. We anticipate sharing aspects of the Summit with a virtual audience as well as offering trail stewardship and in-person networking opportunities around the state.
The 2022 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
