2020 We've Got You Covered

To our valued park users and supporters

UPDATE - January 2021

We reached 61% of our year-end campaign goal. Thank you to everyone who supported us.

Just as Covid restrictions eased up, smoke from west coast wildfires rolled in followed by an early rainy fall. Many recreational riders enjoyed using the Park this year, but our events season never left the starting gate. In total we generated less than 10% of last year’s operating revenue.

We hope you’ll join others and show your support today. We need you as never before in these unprecedented times.

Didn't get to donate to the campaign, but want to now? We are still gladly accepting donations!
