Was a boy scout and avid hiker many many many years ago. First time I shot a rifle was as a Boy Scout. We always left places better than we found them.Welcome Aboard. Glad you found the forum.
This is the best place to hang out on the internet.
Once we're able to start using the public lands again, check out the organized clean ups. It's the best way to meet the community and learn where and how to use public lands responsibly.
[Edit- We are doing non ODFW supported cleanups at public forests] - check the North Fork Wolf Creek Road thread in resources.
Until then check out Trash No Land.
