Mark your Calendars - WTA Hiker Lobby Day (Feb 1)

Without proper funding many of the trails Washington hikers love will be closed or neglected - make your voice heard on this important issue.

When: Feb 01, 2012 - from 08:30 AM to 04:00 PM
Where: Olympia, WA
Contact Name: Kindra Ramos 206-965-8563

On February 1 outdoor enthusiasts from across the state will come together in Olympia and urge legislators to protect funding for recreation and public lands. We hope you can join us at Hiker Lobby Day.

Washington Trails Association works to advance the interests of hikers. But we can’t do it alone. Elected officials need to know that their constituents - you - care about preserving wildlands, accessing trails and having adequate funding for maintenance.

In 2011, WTA brought 75 hikers from across the state together in Olympia to speak out for trails. After the event, legislators and constituents alike commented on how fun and influential the Hiker Lobby Day was.
