Ten awards will support local projects
IMBA and CLIF Bar are currently accepting applications for the IMBA/CLIF Bar Trail Preservation Grants. These grants support projects that preserve and enhance trail access, promote environmental education and inspire conservation in the mountain bicycling community.
Ten US$500 grants will be awarded to IMBA-affiliated clubs that meet the project criteria. The application deadline is September 1, 2009.
"Small grants like this are often the catalyst that can spark a much larger project and fundraising effort. The CLIF Bar program has inspired dozens of sustainably designed trails all over the country," said IMBA Development Director, Rich Cook.
