In short: Partnerships increase impact. Impact attracts resources. Resources enable new projects to materialize.

In the past year, opportunities to tackle new and exciting initiatives with partners have materialized; on these two pages, I’ll share three examples (some new, some established) that demonstrate VWA’s growth mindset and ambition to tackle big things.

Ventana Trails Forever Campaign

"For over a decade the Ventana Wilderness Alliance has led the grassroots effort to protect the wilderness qualities of the Ventana Region, along the Big Sur Coast. VWA volunteers also contribute thousands of hours each year maintaining the public trails in the Ventana back country. I support their conservation work and endorse the Ventana Trails Forever campaign."
