IMBA and CLIF Bar are pleased to announce the 2011 IMBA/CLIF Bar Trail Preservation Grants to support projects that preserve and enhance trail access, promote environmental education and inspire conservation in the mountain bicycling community.
Ten $500 grants will be awarded to IMBA affiliated clubs that meet the project criteria.
The application deadline is April 1, 2011.
“Small grants like this are often the catalyst that can spark a much larger project and fundraising effort — the Clif Bar IMBA Trail Preservation Grants have inspired dozens of sustainably designed trails all over the country,” said IMBA Development Director, Rich Cook.
