An avid hiker and naturalist, with an M.S. in Natural Resources from the University of Michigan, Art grew up in Detroit but has lived in Grants Pass, Oregon, since 1970.


Zach Urness is an award-winning outdoors columnist and photographer who’s been reporting on Oregon’s wild spaces for six years. He covers the environment and recreation at the Statesman Journal in Salem, Oregon, and previously worked in Southern Oregon for the Grants Pass Daily Courier. A hiker, biker, whitewater kayaker, fly-fisherman and climber, Urness spends almost every outside-the-office moment rambling the Beaver State’s forests, mountains and rivers.
