Willamette Valley Outdoors was created to connect those that enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities, right here in the Willamette Valley. I hope to plan out hiking, backpacking, camping, mountain biking, snowboarding, snowshoeing trips and more. The events will be of different outdoor activities and range in difficulty.  I will do my best to have events for both beginners and for those of you that like to push yourselves a bit beyond your own comfort zone.  If you enjoy being outdoors, this is the group for you.

When joining please take the time to fill out the introduction and the questions.  It will help in getting to know you a bit and to plan out some events according to what members of the group enjoy. Those that feel it is a waste of their time, should find another group.

Willamette Valley Outdoors requires a recognizable members profile photo in order to join this meetup group.  Photos of scenery, flowers, cars, and so on do not count.  Meetup is a site for those wishing to meet others and enjoy sharing in similar activities.  The recognizable photo helps leaders and other members recognize you and know who you are.

All members when joining must understand the risk and consequences of outdoor activities.  You are responsible for proper clothing, outdoor equipment and gear, and all other supplies and essentials to keep yourself safe and comfortable during the trips.  By joining, you release the liability of Willamette Valley Outdoors, the leaders and organizers, and fellow members.  You alone are responsible for your own actions.  Willamette Valley Outdoors is ran and organized by volunteers, that are providing a free outdoor service to all members. 

I'm hoping the group will serve as a great way to get together and enjoy the outdoors more.  A strong group of active members that contribute to making the best of the group, having a positive attitude, enjoying the outdoors, promoting the group, inviting friends along, and taking lots of pictures, will help make this a great group to be a part of.

Thank you for joining, and I look forward to meeting each and everyone one of you.
