Metro has teamed up with American Trails to be a major sponsor of the 2015 International Trails Symposium, and is hosting its 5th Annual Trails Fair in conjunction with the Symposium’s Building Public Awareness Event.

Metro works with communities, businesses and residents in the Portland metropolitan area to chart a wise course for the future while protecting the things they love about Oregon. Metro serves nearly 1.5 million people in Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties. The agency's boundary encompasses Portland, Oregon and 24 other cities – from the Columbia River in the north to the bend of the Willamette River near Wilsonville, and from the foothills of the Coast Range near Forest Grove to the banks of the Sandy River at Troutdale.
