Our mission: We promote outdoor recreation and bring people together to enjoy, preserve and improve the places where we play.
Our primary strategies are Stewardship, Education and Fun:
Facilitating collaboration between outdoor enthusiasts, local governments, businesses and individual landowners to improve local trail networks, provide direct service to maintain local parks and develop a sense of pride and ownership in these outdoor places that make our communities unique.
Sharing information between race directors, participants and the public to increase communication and positive shared use of our parks and trails and to lessen the environmental impact of events on these places.
Getting adults and children outside to be active, build community and enjoy our parks and trails.
