GIVING TUESDAY

Choose your own trail adventure!

We know that Giving Tuesday can be a little overwhelming, so we’re taking a break from our fundraising campaign to highlight some of our nonprofit friends who’s work we’d love you share with you.

Love is King’s mission is to provide an opportunity for BIPOC leaders to step into the realm of public land and freshwater conservation efforts and disrupt the historical system that allowed BIPOC voices to not be invited to government spaces where the decisions were made about land and wildlife and indigenous conservation policies.

The Oregon Trails Coalition is a cooperative body of broad-based, statewide trail interests dedicated to supporting, promoting, and advocating for the preservation, development, and stewardship of a statewide network of sustainable, world class trails.

In an effort to improve diversity in trail racing and remove a potential barrier for the under-served and under-represented, Go Beyond Racing established the Trail Mix Fund™ in 2021. This Fund pays the race registration fee for runners who cannot afford it or aren’t sure they belong in the sport. The response to the Trail Mix Fund was so positive that this official not-for-profit organization was created and is now helping more trail racers get to the starting line.

NWTA’s mission is to advocate for new trails, to protect, improve, and build sustainable mountain bike trails, and to create recreation opportunities for mountain biking.

Forest Park Conservancy’s mission is focused on protecting Forest Park’s ecological health while encouraging responsible recreation and access. We believe these values are not only consistent, they are interdependent: the more people visit Forest Park and experience just how special a place this is, the more the public will support and value it. And the more people value this unique urban forest, the brighter its future will be.

A group of Trailkeeper volunteers were undaunted by the ‘atmospheric river’ and showed up at Camp Talaoli anyway. These hardy folks were here to learn the skills needed to repair hiking trails after wildfires, and to start  rebuilding trails damaged by the Beachie Creek Fire.
