June 4, 2020: Holly Weiler, The Washington Trails Association work in the Inland Northwest - from the eyes of a seasoned backpacker and volunteer.   

  
Washington Trails Association mobilizes hikers and everyone who loves the outdoors to explore, steward and champion trails and public lands. 
We believe:
• That exploring nature is good for people’s hearts, minds and bodies, and that hiking is a powerful way for everyone to connect with Washington’s natural wonders.
• That people will protect the places they love to hike, from local parks to remote wilderness.
• It is vitally important for everyone to have the opportunity to access the outdoors, and we are committed to reducing barriers to hiking trails and lands.
Attend this program to learn more about the Washington Trails Association's work in the Spokane area, as well as how to get involved in local and regional projects.
Holly Weiler is Washington Trails Association's Eastern Washington Regional Coordinator.  Holly’s passion for trails has its roots in trail running, but over the years she has transitioned into a seasoned backpacker who loves her time in the backcountry. When she’s not running or backpacking, you can find her doing trail maintenance, either as part of her work for Washington Trails Association or as a volunteer with like-minded local organizations. A life-long resident of the Spokane area, Holly holds an AA degree from Community Colleges of Spokane, a BA in English and History from Whitworth University, and an MFA in Creative Writing from Eastern Washington University. In addition to her work with Washington Trails Association, Holly is a writer for Out There Outdoors.  She serves on the board of the Foothills Rural Association, the Spokane Mountaineers, the Spokane Mountaineers Foundation, and the Friends of Mount Spokane State Park.
