In case you missed it, the recently passed Wisconsin state budget threatens the Alliance’s work on the Ice Age Trail. The $74,000 capacity grant that we have applied for and received each year for more than 15 years will no longer be available. This grant was a reliable source of support for our efforts, and we are unwilling to lower our commitment to 2,300+ volunteers and 1.25 million trail users.
Consider a few things you can do to keep the Ice Age Trail moving forward and help fill the $74,000 budget gap:
- Become a Trail Sustainer and support the Trail year-round through automatic monthly donations.
- Make a $27 gift right now beyond your annual membership donation to help fill the gap.
- Keep on volunteering. Though it doesn’t show up on financial statements, your efforts show up every day on the Trail.
