About the Volkssport Club:
The NW Tulip Trekkers is an outdoor walking club based in the coastal counties between Seattle and Canada. We promote recreational walking for all ages, through scheduled group walks, AVA-sanctioned volkswalks, a monthly newsletter and occasional meetings. This walker’s network provides information about local and out-of-town AVA-sanctioned and non-sanctioned events. The Trekkers Club is designed for the AVA-member walkers and for individuals and families who just want to walk for the fun and fitness.

As executive director, he works to fulfill our mission to teach the health benefits of nature, promote outdoor recreation, and steward the places where we play.
