400 miles in 30 days: Hiking the Oregon Coast

Did you know there's a project underway to create a National Coast Trail, which would make it possible to travel by land or water around the entire United States border?

Learn more about it at Hiking the Oregon Coast Trail, an illustrated talk by Al LePage, the Director of the National Coast Trail Association, on Thursday, March 4, at 6:00 at the Downtown Eugene Public Library. LePage will share stories and images of his Oregon Coast Trail hike: 400 miles in 30 days!

LePage has hiked, kayaked, and biked more than 2500 miles of the envisioned 10,000-mile National Coast Trail. In addition to Oregon, he has hiked the coasts of Washington and California, making him the first person ever to hike both the 1800-mile West Coast Trail and the 750-mile Great Northeast Trail.

Admission is free. For more information, contact Eugene Public Library at 541-682-5450 or www.eugene-or.gov/library.

Sponsored by the Eugene Public Library, Friends of the Library, and the Eugene Public Library Foundation.
