An Oregon Wild Wednesday Presentation:
If you’re a serious hiker in Oregon, you’ve probably heard his name. You may have read one of his novels. His famous hand drawn maps might have guided you back to the trailhead from a distant wilderness vista. His name is William Sullivan, and no man is more synonymous with Oregon hiking trails than the fifth generation Oregonian and Eugene native.
Join Oregon Wild and William Sullivan at Davis' Restaurant in Eugene for an evening of exploration with the master of Oregon trails. Sullivan will present on his experiences hiking every public trail in Oregon and reveal the recreation secrets in Oregon’s newest Wilderness areas. His most recently updated book, Atlas of Oregon Wilderness was released shortly after the March 2009 passage of the Omnibus Public Lands bill that expanded Oregon Wilderness protections by 200,000 acres.
Sullivan is best known for his 100 Hikes series that details the best hikes in five distinct regions of the state. He has gathered his hiking trail knowledge over a three decade career that included a 1985 trip where Sullivan set out to investigate Oregon’s wilderness on a 1,361-mile solo backpacking trek from the state’s westernmost shore at Cape Blanco to Oregon’s easternmost point in Hells Canyon.
Also presenting will be Oregon Wild Wilderness Coordinator Erik Fernandez. Fernandez will give guests an inside look at how the recent Wilderness expansion came to pass and a sneak peak at what’s next for Oregon Wilderness.
