Redwood Trails Alliance is launching their Bring Back Boggs fundraising campaign. In partnership with Trail House of Santa Rosa and various stakeholders, Redwood Trails Alliance is raising funds to rebuild Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest trails and give away an awesome trail bike to one lucky
Redwood Trails Alliance, a 501(c)(3) trail stewardship organization, is launching the “Bring Back Boggs” bike giveaway. Trail House of Santa Rosa donated a Specialized Stumpjumper Expert mountain bike worth $5,900 to raise funds to rebuild the trails at Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest (BMDSF), which were devastated by wildfires in 2015. BMDSF has been a popular mountain bike destination for years and home of the Bike Monkey Boggs 8 hour race and home of the NorCal Interscholastic Cycling League’s state championship race. After nearly 90% of the 3,100 acres of forest was burned, rebuilding is underway, but WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT to get the job done!
This forest is so important to the local community, Lake County District 5 Supervisor, Jessica Pyska, announced actions to make healthier living more accessible in District 5. Pyska is dedicating $25,000 in cannabis tax funds to the Friends of Boggs and Redwood Trails Alliance, kicking off a $100,000 “Bring Back Boggs” fundraising campaign to rebuild trails in Boggs forest. You too can donate towards Boggs recovery. Each $5 donation goes toward one chance to win the giveaway prizes. The campaign begins February 17, 2022 and closes on Sunday, February 27 at 6:00 pm p.m. PST. Interested parties can enter to win here at www.trailsalliance.org or https://trailsalliance.givingfuel.com/bringbackboggs.
Further support of the Bring Back Boggs campaign comes from Calpine Corporation. Calpine donated $15,000 towards the $100,000 goal to rebuild trails in BMDSF. “Calpine Corporation and Supervisor Pyska’s donations give us a $40,000 boost to our Bring Back Boggs campaign.” says Debbie St.Cyr Executive Director, Redwood Trails Alliance. “We are optimistic for a successful campaign and grateful to work in partnership with Friends of Boggs Mountain.”
“None of the work we do would be possible without support from our members, loyal sponsors, partners and the many visitors from around the Bay Area who cherish our trails,” said Debbie St. Cyr, Executive Director of Redwood Trails Alliance. “Trail House of Santa Rosa has supported Redwood Trails Alliance from the very beginning, and together, we’ve brought world-class trails to the community. With the Specialized Bicycles Stumpjumper Expert, they’ve bottled up that “new bike day” feeling and put it into a radical new trail bike so agile, so lively, so in-tune with the trail, that it feels like an extension of your body. Levitate up the climbs. Decimate the descents. It’s the perfect NorCal trail bike!
We also have some sweet runner-up prizes for more chances to win, including a set of Reserve 30 29 inch carbon mountain bike wheels donated by Reserve Wheels and a Wahoo Roam bike computer donated by RIDE Napa Valley.
