ABOUT THE EPISODE

Santa Cruz first caught my attention years ago through their involvement with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, and the other events they have been involved with that also included an aspect of trail work. Then in November of 2019 Santa Cruz rolled out the “Paydirt Fund”. This really caught my attention and I’m sure others as well. After all, how many companies are giving out One Million Dollars over 3 years with no geographical limitations, and very few other limitations?

This brought me to Katie Zaffke who is the Paydirt Fund Program Coordinator. This is one of the most inspiring interviews I had the opportunity to take part in yet. Tune in to learn more about the Santa Cruz and the Paydirt fund.

Topics in the show include:

  • Katie Zaffke’s back story
  • The backstory about Santa Cruz supporting trail communities such as the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship.
  • How the Paydirt Fund came about
  • The details on some Paydirt Fund recipients
  • Details on what makes a good project for the Paydirt Fund
  • Breaking News – Tune in to see what program is morphing in the name of supporting those who help push trail projects.
  • Closing Comments.

ABOUT THE EPISODE

PEARL iZUMi has caught my attention as a company that is making great strides in telling stories about people and communities. They have a series called “Underexposed” high lighting communities that people may not associate mountain biking with right away and bringing attention to the. PEARL iZUMi also has a “Dig Series” where they highlight communities that are using trails and mountain biking to revitalize their economy.

In this show we speak with Joshua Lawton both a content creator and story teller for PEARL iZUMi. Joshua came to PEARL iZUMi from IMBA where he brought both the background and understanding trails and the advocacy that goes into creating trails doesn’t always get the attention they deserve.

Topics in the show include:

  • Joshua Lawton’s backstory
  • PEARL iZUMi Blog

ABOUT THE EPISODE

In 2018, ORA Trails, in partnership with the City of La Crosse Parks, was awarded an IMBA Trail Accelerator Grant, that provided planning services for a 5.5-mile trail system within Grandad Bluff Park in the City of La Crosse, Wisconsin. The goal was to provide trails in an underutilized park that had rogue and social use issues. Aside from a great view from this bluff, there were no other recreational amenities offered. Now the system has been completed and legalized. We discuss the timeline of how this played out.

Topics covered in this episode:

  • Jed Olson – Newly hired executive director for the Outdoor Recreation Alliance of the 7 Rivers Region – ORA Trails
  • The concept of a trail system within a city park that offers 550’ of elevation gain, excellent views, and is located right in the middle of the community. This is the exact plan that when completed offered “More Trails Close to Home”.
  • The timeline from Concept to Complete
  • How attending IMBA Trail Labs in Bentonville, Arkansas helped provide insight to being awarded the Trail Accelerator Grant
  • Hiccups and lessons learned through the process
  • What people can expect from this trail system – Hint – it’s got something for everyone. From Beginner level trails suitable for the Family and Strollers to Some technical “Black Level” shared use trails. This is a shared use system, and was intended to be that which has been a huge success in terms of getting the residents of La Crosse outside an into an area that most would not have gone to in the past. 
  • Looking forward in the La Crosse Area with ORA Trails
