DescriptionFunded by outdoor retailer REI, the Club’s Cornerstone Conservation grants create health climbing landscapes, promote respect for the places people climb, and empower local climbing communities. Grants are awarded to local climbing organizations, land managers and agencies, nonprofits, and individuals for projects as varied as building or improving trail networks to climbing areas; establishing new toilet facilities and signage at trailheads; and deploying a variety of community groups for clean-up and graffiti removal at local crags. Requests for land acquisition or fixed anchor replacement will not be funded. The Club accepts applications each year between June 15 and August 15.
