INDEPENDENT STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM

ISP header.jpg

Oregon Natural Desert Association's Independent Stewardship Program (ISP) offers self-guided stewardship projects for volunteers looking to get out on their own and contribute to critical projects to support healthy desert habitats in Oregon's high desert.

Overview

Project: ISP Program Design 

Scope: The purpose of the assessment was to offer suggestions for the Bigfoot Trail Alliance to help accomplish its goals, several of which include: increase hiker engagement, improve communication with BFT hikers on the trail, and increase awareness of the trail in the hiking community.​

Project Details

Process: I conducted a full assessment of trail materials including: guidebook, map, GPX track, website, 2023 annual report - Year in Review​, DEI statement, FarOut app, hiker blogs, podcasts, and trip reports. Surveys were conducted with BFTA donors, members, volunteers, agency and community partners, board members and contractors, trail town partners and business stakeholders.​

Impact: The Bigfoot Trail Alliance is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, and currently has no paid staff. The board continues to review the assessment report and implement suggestions as time and resources allow. If additional grant funding is identified, I will continue to assist in updating and refining the trail materials under BFTA direction.
