About the Presenter
Zach Urness has been an outdoors reporter, photographer and videographer in Oregon for eight years. He’s currently the outdoors editor at the Statesman Journal and has written for a number of other publications, including USA Today, Seattle Times and the Oregonian. He is the author of the book Hiking Southern Oregon.
Urness covers the news of the outdoors—the environment, public lands and recreation—but has the most fun traveling to the state’s wildest places and reporting on adventures that involve roaring rivers, mountain peaks and remote trails. Zach’s favorite adventures, however, are any time he can bring his one-and-a-half-year-old daughter Lucy with him into the outdoors.
