The Continental Divide Trail Coalition currently has an Indiegogo campaign underway. Their goal is to raise $35,000, the proceeds of which is “…..to rally outdoor and environmental communities across the country towards supporting the future of this incredible national resource. Federal funds for land preservation are slowly being restricted due to sequestration and cuts to federal spending in general. The trail corridor and its preservation is falling through the cracks, and is facing great capacity difficulties in maintaining what so many have worked so hard to build. Dollars from this campaign will directly support much needed advocacy and protection efforts, map making, data collection, and volunteer trail building.” There are various funding levels available from $5 (Elk Bugle Shout Out!) up to $1,750 (Pie Town to Grants Ramble).
The CDTC has goals and visions that are not unlike those of GreenPackin’ (see our “About” page). We have been a business partner with the CDTC since shortly after their formation and we will continue to support and promote their efforts, the development of the CDT and the communities and individuals who are so very important to the CDT.
23 days remain in the CDTC Indiegogo campaign, please support them.
