PWORA is very proud to be the recipient of a significant grant from the FOX Factory Trail Trust Program that is helping recover and reopen critical multi-use recreation facilities after they have been devastated by intense wildfires.
FOX’s Trail Trust aims to deliver sustainable adventure to everyone with nonprofit partners worldwide. This means promoting the conscientious use of land amongst outdoor enthusiasts and protecting our shared playgrounds. It also requires expanding opportunities within the outdoor sporting industry, diversifying the populations that participate in power sports — because everyone deserves the thrill of adventure.
PWORA worked on two post-Ranch Fire projects on the Mendocino National Forest of northern California during 2021. PWORA completed the Mason Trail Connector Project. And now with funds from both the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Grant Program and the FOX Trail Trust, the St. John’s Mountain Restoration Project is geared up for completion in 2022. Both of these projects are vital to sustainable recreation opportunities in the area.
While government grants are critically important to help pay for post-fire recovery efforts, often, a nonprofit has to cover significant upfront costs since some grants take time to travel through the bureaucracy. The generous grant from the FOX Trail Trust will ensure that projects get off the ground and are completed on time.
