It’s been over a year since individuals and organizations were propelled into action to play an active role in combating social injustice. Like other organizations, Evergreen set out to face the inequities and injustices within our own community and the outdoor industry. Yvonne, our Executive Director, wrote a personal statement where she highlighted the importance of inclusivity and diversity in the outdoors, and vowed that Evergreen would shift its priorities to better serve ALL of our community.

It's a great time to ride and a great time to build more #Riderpowered trails!  Every spring since 2015 we have asked you to Give Big for trails. In just the past five years Give Big donors have opened up more than 100 miles of #Riderpowered new trail and 2 entirely new ride areas in (or near) Wenatchee, the Methow Valley, Ellensburg, Roslyn, Battle Ground, Port Gamble, Issaquah/North Bend, Skykomish, Leavenworth, and Spokane. It's time to do it again and you can #BeTheBuilder with a donation today. We need $125,000 in our Trails Fund to make it happen.  Our Trails Fund needs replenishing, and your help supports miles of projects that are ready to go! A strong Trails Fund allow us to complete urgent maintenance tasks and keep our Trail Crew going all year.
