Celebrating a Century in One Night


On Saturday, Oct. 16, we celebrated our Centennial Gala, and there are still opportunities to celebrate and support a century of service.

We are still head over boots and buzzing from our Centennial Gala on Saturday night. It was well worth the wait to celebrate a century of service with so many of the people who make our mission possible.

Every member of our Trail Family plays a vital role in protecting the outdoor experiences we enjoy today. And that's why it's important to us to ensure everyone gets to join in the celebration through our virtual experience.

It is thanks to this Trail Conference community that millions of people throughout the region have been able to experience the outdoors for the last 100 years. Generations more will know the joys of nature through our—your—continued efforts. We are moved by nature; we are united by trails.

Thank you for being part of such an important legacy.
