2022 is The Conservation Foundation’s 50th Anniversary year,
and in celebration of our work to connect people and nature,
we invite you to join our
50 Miles for 50 Years Challenge!!
Sign up (it’s free), log 50 miles walking, running, biking, paddling, hiking, rolling, skiing, snowshoeing, etc. in nature throughout the year, and win a hiking stick medallion to commemorate your efforts and our milestone anniversary when you’re finished!
We’ll be sharing recommendations for new local natural areas to explore (along with some of our favorite nearby watering holes), establishing a Facebook group where you can exchange pictures and ideas with other participants, and offering prizes for other fun categories like most miles logged, best TCF swag on the trail, best nature photo and more. This is not a fitness contest, although the mental and physical benefits of time in nature are certainly intended side effects. Our hope is to get you outside, experiencing the wonders of nature firsthand. Only rules are:
