California Trails Conference Foundation
The mission of the California Trails Conference Foundation is to inspire recreational trail leadership through the annual California Trails and Greenways Conference. To achieve this mission, the Foundation, in collaboration with California State Parks, will create venues that will enable trail professionals and advocates to:
- Learn from a broad range of high quality, up-to-date educational sessions, workshops, presentations and other teaching venues.
- Network for the purpose of learning from the experiences of others, seeking or giving advice, building support for trail endeavors, and finding partnership opportunities.
The California Trails Conference Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax deductible nonprofit organization that assists with the planning and operation of the California Trails & Greenways Conference; and serves as the Conference’s fiscal agent. The Conference is self-funded and all funds raised by the Foundation are applied directly to Conference costs.
The 2017 Trails Conference will take place at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa, April 19-21.
Sponsorships provide significant opportunities to promote services, products and agencies through email promotions, links from California State Parks’ website, inclusion on selected conference items, and tabling in our exhibit areas. There are many sponsorship levels available.
Exhibitors have a unique opportunity to exhibit services and products to a niche market from local, state and federal agencies, conservation and nonprofit organizations, as well as community advocates for hiking, biking and horseback riding trails.
Additional donation opportunities are available for the Silent Auction, Raffle and Conference Bags. It is anticipated that over 350 trail professionals and advocates from all over California and beyond will attend this event.
All donations are tax deductible and provide a fun and effective means of promoting your products and services.
