What is the Sharon Churchwell Fund? The Service subcommittee established this fund in honor of a dedicated young service trip leader whose commitment to the outdoor experience—and to service trips in particular—continues to be an inspiration to our leaders, cooks, and participants. This fund allows adults ages 18-30 to go on select service trips for $300 off the listed price.
In 2016, we're running the following Sharon Churchwell Fund trips:
- Trail Work in California's Trinity Alps
- Service with the Seven Devils, Hells Canyon Wilderness, Idah
- Gros Ventre Wilderness Service, Wyoming
- Wind River Range Restoration, Wyoming
- Unplug, Unwind, and Dig In: Trail Work in the Idaho Panhandle
- John Muir Wilderness Service, California
