Redmond Chapter

Mission

The Redmond Chapter of COTA is dedicated to the preservation, stewardship and development of human powered trails in Central Oregon, and enhancing community through the development of volunteer based trail work and bicycle advocacy. We work in cooperation with local land managers and property owners to protect and maintain recreation opportunities throughout the region. This includes trails around Grey Butte and Smith Rock State Park, Cline Buttes, Maston and The Radlands.

Goals

Current projects include completion and maintenance of new trails at the Radlands and adoption and maintenance of trails within the Crooked River National Grasslands.  We are also in the final phases of planning for new trails on Cline Buttes.

Meetings

Chapter meetings are held the third Wednesday of odd numbered months, from 6:00 – 7:00 pm, at the RAPRD conference room, Cascade Swim Center, 465 SW Rimrock Drive,  Redmond, OR 97756, beginning January 21st, 2015.

Work Events

The work event schedule will be posted on the COTA Calendar.
We will carpool to the work site.
COTA will provide food and refreshments after the event.

Please bring a hydration pack with water and a snack.
Be sure to bring appropriate clothing layers to accommodate whatever the weather may be.

All COTA trail work events require the following safety measures:
All participants are required to have the following protective clothing and equipment:

  • Sturdy shoes or boots
  • Gloves
  • Eye protection with clear or light colored lens
  • Long pants

Due to COTA’s insurance requirements and the inherent dangers of trail work, we must implement the following policy regarding children at work events:

  • For anyone 14 years of age or younger, we require one parent, guardian, or responsible adult for supervision of every four kids attending any COTA trail work events.
  • All minors under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian available to sign our waiver.

Anyone who arrives for a work event may be turned away if he/she cannot meet the above requirements.
