Give Back to Trails

By donating to the Recovery and Response Fund, you are supporting our innovative efforts to digitally train our volunteer force in sustainable trail building, maintenance, and invasive species identification, which will allow us to hit the ground running as soon as on-the-ground work resumes. You are enabling us to develop new ways to educate the public and help plan your family’s summer hiking trips. We are also dedicating more time to research and advocacy to ensure our government continues to invest in the protection of outdoor space.

The increased interest in nature sparked by these uncertain times can be nurtured into a full-blown passion for the outdoors. As a Trail Conference supporter, you can help establish that groundswell of conservationism and safeguard the future of trails right now.
