- Bend Chapter Meeting: A night with Wesley Heredia of Vamonos Outside63075 Crusher Ave, Bend, OR
Join us on Tuesday, March 12th at 6:00pm at the COTA Bunker for a special evening with Wesley Heredia and some of the coaches of Vamonos Outside. Their mission is to advance an inclusive outdoor culture in Central Oregon by providing outdoor recreation opportunities for the Latine & BIPOC communities. Their work includes providing equitable access to outdoor spaces and programs, and ingraining Latino culture within the Central Oregon outdoor narrative. They will tell us about their MTB program, Tierra Adventuras, and share with us how we can be welcoming and inclusive to this community.
There will be updates on trail work opportunities (fingers crossed) coming up, Horse Ridge, Tiddlywinks, training opportunities, and Trail Love which is less than 2 months away. This is a fun get together of people who love trails.
The Bunker is heated, but not well so wear your puffy coat and bring a chair. Parking is limited so carpool if you can. Fingers crossed the roads and weather are kind to us.
All are welcome! If you’re looking to get involved in COTA, chapter meetings are a great way to meet people and learn about what going on.
