Trails and Tarmac is a relatively new company in the grand scheme of things. We are small, but we had been talking this year about how we might start to give back and make a difference outside of our coaching programs as a small company. After a long search through different organizations we settled on a group called the Siskiyou Mountain Club. Our monetary contribution would barely crack four figures, which would not go far in large organizations, but with a small grass roots non profit like SMC we can make a real difference. This article talks about why we chose to give to SMC, what they do here in Southern Oregon and Northern California, and how their model for trail restoration may be extremely important beyond our region.
