Bruce Matthews, Executive Director of the North Country Trail Association will co-host the 82nd Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) conference.

About 500 members of the OWAA are expected to attend June 13-16 in Grand Rapids Michigan. The conference will be based at the Amway Grand Plaza hotel, with trips to trout streams, islands, national forests and parks. It is the first OWAA conference to be held in Michigan since the 1980s.

Two events on June 13 are open to the public. The first, "Becoming an Outdoor Communicator," will run from 8 a.m.- noon. Aspiring outdoor writers must register in advance at the web site. The second public even is that evening from 6:30-9:30 p.m. and is a benefit auction.

The other co-host is Tom Huggler, a well-known outdoor writer who currently writes for Shooting Sportsmen.
