Last year, REI announced its first ever open call for grant applications with the co-op’s Force of Nature Fund. REI invested $500,000 in 26 non-profit partners to create more opportunities for women and girls to get outdoors.

Thanks to a Force of Nature grant, the Ice Age Trail Alliance was able to restore a large section of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail back to a mix of prairie and oak savanna. Check out the video below to see how a group of 30 women came together to restore wilderness in their local community.
