Who are The Cascadians?
The Cascadians is an outdoor recreation and conservation club located in Yakima, Washington.
Activities include hiking, backpacking, climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, bicycling, golf, paddling and more.
Cascadians have been enjoying the trails and peaks of the Pacific Northwest since 1920.
First Aid Class
The Cascadians are sponsoring a first aid class for all members. Due to cost sharing by the club, participants may take the class for only $15, payable at the time and place of the class.
Basic first aid is a valuable skill to have on all Cascadians events. Please consider taking advantage of this opportunity.
Program: What's Going on at the Washington Trails Association, by Alan Carter Mortimer
Alan Carter Mortimer has been a field program manager for the Washington Trails Association (WTA) for the last 12 years. Prior to that he was a volunteer for the organization for 11 years. He supervisors volunteer trail maintenance crews working on hiking, equestrian and mountain bike trails across the state including the Olympic Peninsula, South Puget Sound, Mount Rainier National Park, and all of eastern Washington. His passion is to spend as much time outdoors exploring new places in our beautiful state and helping to make it possible for others to enjoy these same experiences in the natural world.
