About Warrenton Trails Association
Warrenton's Vision is a trail system connecting important historical, cultural and natural sites in the greater Warrenton Oregon area.
To help explore, detail and realize this vision the Warrenton Trails Association (WTA) was formed in 2003.
The trails are for everyone! From bikers, walkers, bird watchers, dog walkers and nature lovers there is plenty to see and explore.
January Events 2013
Join us in the Estuary:
Visit the Lower Columbia River and Learn About Oregon LNG's Export Proposal
On Saturday, January 12th, you are invited to join a tour of the area impacted by the proposed Oregon LNG project. Jim Scheller, who chairs the Skipanon Watershed Council and the Warrenton Trails Association, will help to lead the tour and explain efforts to restore salmon habitat and wetlands in the immediate vicinity of the proposed Oregon LNG project.
For the first time, the State of Oregon and U.S. EPA directly linked LNG exports to increased "fracking" in inland gas producing regions. Previously in October, activists from throughout the region packed a standing room-only hearing in Warrenton, and urged FERC to reject Oregon LNG's export proposal.
Dan Serres, Conservation Director for Columbia Riverkeeper will be on hand to explain the OR LNG plans to dredge over 1 million cubic yards of critical salmon habitat, cross hundreds of streams and wetlands for its connected pipelines, and threaten the public safety of Warrenton and Astoria to ship North American natural gas to Asia.
Join us to learn more about this project and how we can work together to stop it!
