In November 2001, a coalescence of ideas spawned the Oregon Birding Trails project. One month later, a host of organizations came to the table and embraced the project, resulting in the Oregon Birding Trails Working Group. All working group members contribute a tremendous amount of time and energy towards the long-term success of Oregon Birding Trails. Please visit their respective web sites to learn more about how the working group ticks.
