This holiday season, consider supporting the Ice Age National Scenic Trail while buying gifts for the people you love!
There are several ways you can support the Ice Age National Scenic Trail this holiday season AND get all of your holiday shopping done. See a list of three ways you can shop online and support the Ice Age Trail below.
Merchandise on our online store directly supports the Ice Age Trail Alliance and our mission to conserve, create, maintain, and promote the Ice Age Trail.

2: Support local businesses within our Trail Communities
The Ice Age National Scenic Trail traverses the entire state of Wisconsin, winding through 142 communities along the way. Fifteen have chosen to support the Ice Age Trail and recognize the important factor the Trail plays in their local economies by becoming official Ice Age Trail Communities. This holiday season, enjoy a uniquely Wisconsin experience at the charming restaurants, breweries, and businesses nestled within our Trail Communities.
3: Buy from retailers who support the Ice Age Trail
Consider doing your holiday shopping with these Friends of the Ice Age Trail. Our corporate partners help fund important aspects of our work. It’s nice to know when you purchase a gift from one of these businesses, you are also supporting the Alliance.
