Well hello! I'm so happy you have discovered our exclusive pack of outdoor enthusiasts who are dedicated to protecting and preserving our outdoor spaces! We thank you in advance for being so awesome in believing in our goals and visions! Without you, our dreams would only remain a dream.

ALLOW ME TO TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US:  

Hi there! I, Brittany Leffel, am the founder of The Hiking Initiative.

The Hiking Initiative was originally designed to simply be about hiking, but then the policies of how our public lands should be governed became a debate on two different sides of Bears Ears, and our Secretary of Interior was not for all types of public land advocates.

We believe in long-term benefit, rather than short-term gain, which is why we strive to become experts in Outdoor Advocacy, so we can help you be one too. Although, I don't think we will ever become experts, so we will find mentors in the industry who are.

As a result, we are dedicated to educating, encouraging, and empowering people to not be shy talking about our Public Lands. Giving advice, looking for the best places to put our dollars towards, amplifying our voices for the cause. Politics and hobbies don't normally mix, but it's time to change that when speaking for the outdoor spaces we cherish.

We prefer to keep it fun and educate our readers on hot topics in politics, but let us not forget about the trails we seek for solitude, and the gear we use to extend our trips in those fortresses of solitude.

One day, we hope to hit the road so we can join the rest of the pack and organizations that are rigorously working on the ground to fight against Congress for public lands.

Let's get chatty. Let's get creative. Let's put our dollars towards like mind organizations. Let's recognize the value of public lands. Let's be inclusive.

Join the pack, and lets all become better advocates. TOGETHER.


THE VISION:

The Hiking Initiative is curated with a mission to educate, encourage, and empower people to speak up for our Public Lands. A platform where anyone can share their love for the outdoors. We want to share lessons on how to talk about Public Lands, how to explore outdoor spaces, and how to be sustainable on Public Lands. This includes seeking positive change for providing equal access to all outdoor spaces. 

WHY BE OUR PATRON?  

A simple way to support our mission to provide better content for our pack. We have awesome projects in the pipeline, and we want as many readers as possible to be included in this exclusive-access. As a Patron, you provide us with insights into the matters that are most important to you. What does advocacy mean to you? How do you transform that into momentum? What are projects we can implement with these funds? Patreon is the simplest way to remove the ads from our site, for good.

As a Patreon supporter, you will have exclusive, early access to content that will be available to Patrons. As outdoor advocates, we strive to provide you with bi-partisan information on our outdoor spaces, and value your feedback first! 

As we grow our patronage, this will allow us to increase how we outreach. Our goal is to help generate an activism program that enhances the ability of organizations to enable active stewardship of our Public Lands. Sometimes, it's a collective empowerment that levees momentum to generate change.

Simply put, there is a new age of activism, and we strive to be a leading force. 

Help us turn these ideas into reality, and help shape the Hiking Initiative into a platform that can help make a difference! As always, you can reach out to us at [email protected] for more information!

Best,
Brittany

No pledge is too small, and we value each of our Patrons. Regardless of how much you can commit, we want to recognize you for believing us. At this tier, we will add you as a sponsor as we build our partnership page, and we can add a link to any of your social media pages or websites. 
Handwritten note coming your way
$5 or more per month 2 patrons
Handwritten notes aren't as common as they used to. Receive an authentic hand written note on a locally crafted post card. Whether we are in sunny Bend, Oregon or on a dirt road in Winslow, Arizona, you will see the local way of life and environment to teleport you beyond your mailbox. 
Join the members-only club
$10 or more per month 1 patron
We would love to create a Hiking Initiative Membership program. As we build on this dollar amount, we will be generating surveys to gain insight to what type of membership would be the most beneficial. 
You make us strive to be the best
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
You truly believe in our mission, and we can't thank you enough! This tier will allow us the opportunity to create a  tool-kit, and get on the road to connect with organizations that enable active stewardship, but need extra grassroots help to spark conversation for those looking to be individually empowered. You shine on the mountain top, and will receive all the above. Plus extra mention, because this pledge level is absolutely selfless. 
Goals
$23 of $100 per month
This goal amount will ensure the longevity of the website itself. Further being able to cover the cost of maintaining and advertising the website. Currently, we advertise less than $50 a month, all out of pocket, and are working on building a subscribers list, or as we call it, "The Hiking Initiative Pack." Until we reach this point, we are unable to level-up marketing efforts to reach a broader group of individuals, outreach, upgrade to ConvertKit, or upgrade to a business account through Squarespace.
