It has been one year since I joined Oregon Walks as Executive Director – and it has been just as energizing and jam-packed as I hoped it would be. Working on pedestrian issues and supporting this wonderful organization’s growth is why I started this role last July, and I want to share with you some of our accomplishments over this past year and the exciting opportunities we have on the horizon.

We are excited to be leading walking tours during the September 27th Sunday Parkways event. This is a free event, and the bridge will be open to pedestrians only.

Join us for a special Oregon Walks member tour over the bridge. We will be leading tours all day, but want to ensure that our members get a chance for a special tour. More details on timing will be shared closer to the event, but RSVP now to ensure you will be on the list to receive more information!

We are very excited to announce that we are hiring for a Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator here at Oregon Walks. This position is possible thanks to funding from Metro's Regional Travel Options program and our partnerships with Portland Public Schools & Portland Bureau of Transportation.

We are looking forward to bringing on a new staff member to engage with our volunteers and people all across the state around walking. Please see below for the full job description and details on how to apply:
