From November 22-28, Trango is donating 10% of all purchases at www.trango.com to the Southeastern Climbers Coalition. To support the SCC, simply purchase Trango products or become a member of the SCC (link below).
About the Southeastern Climbers Coalition:
The SCC’s mission is to protect climbing areas for generations to come. This happens in a variety of ways for us, but the biggest being that we BUY climbing areas! The SCC currently owns 8 areas and each of these will remain open to the public for free forever! We also help manage over 30 climbing areas across the southeast. We do this through maintaining relationships with private and public land owners and managers and doing trail days and clean ups.
The SCC in Action:
We host between 20-30 trail days and clean ups each year. One big initiative we’ve got going this year (thanks to a Cornerstone Conservation grant from The American Alpine Club) is graffiti removal! Here’s a sweet video the Access Fund Conservation team put together at one of our trail days: https://www.facebook.com/ConservationTeam/videos/796687960441660/
What’s New at the SCC?
Another initiative we’re working on is called our Conservation Legacy Program. A program for large donors ($500-1,000+) in which every penny goes into a fund for future climbing area purchases!! Our goal is to get 20 CLP donors a year, so we have $20k to put towards new climbing purchases every year! This will help us pay off areas in no time…which means we can move on to buying more!
