Obsidians @ Eugene's Ridgeline:

The main concern of the Trail Crew is to lessen the impact on the environment that great numbers of people make.
—Appalachian Mountain Club, Trail Crew Leader

The Stewardship committee arranges projects with the City of Eugene Parks & Open Space Division. We do regular, monthly trips on the Ridgeline Trails and Spencer Butte, and we do litter pick up hikes along the Ridgeline Trails system.
