Got an Idea to Improve Our Outdoors?

Project Outside grant applications are open now.

Throughout the fall individuals and businesses showed their love for the outdoors through hundreds of donations to Project Outside, a community fund created to support outdoor capital improvement projects, maintain key outdoor assets, and help launch and support businesses in the outdoor sector.

With your support, $107,000 was raised and we are accepting grant applications through January 30.

If you know an area that needs some TLC or a project that needs a jumpstart check out the Project Outside grant, and help spread the word.
