Keith G. Hay
Keith G. Hay has been an avid outdoorsman and kayaker throughout his long career in wildlife ecology and conservation. His interest in the Lewis and Clark expedition began in 1963 when he joined the U.S. Bureau of Outdoor Recreation and worked with the first national Lewis and Clark Trail Commission. In 1966 he received the commission's Jefferson Peace Medal for his two-year study of the expedition's route, and co-authored The Lewis and Clark Trail: A Proposal for Development, which recommended a plan for creating and preserving a "recreational ribbon" along the eleven-state trail. Keith is a founder and past president of the Oregon Chapter of the National Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, vice-president of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Oregon, and a founder and national advocate for the American Greenways Program.
