We're excited and thankful for the generous support we've received from Fjällräven to further our mission. Similar to The Mountaineers, Fjällräven is committed to protecting our wild places, engaging as many people as possible in the outdoors, and giving back to the communities they serve.

Additional gratitude is extended to our friends at Canoe Ridge Vineyard, who share a passion of the outdoors and Pacific Northwest adventure, for their generous philanthropic and in-kind support to advance our mission.

Expanding Our Impact

Our partnership with Fjällräven and Canoe Ridge Vineyard enables us to offer a number of exciting events for families and urban hikers and engaging seminars focused around introductory hiking skills and techniques for fall season fun. Together, we'll explore our upcoming Mountaineers Books spring release of Discovering Seattle Parks authored by Linnea Westerlind and gain skills from PCT thru-hiker Tami Asars, another one of our authors.
