Also, a percent of the sales proceeds will support various trail initiatives, including effrots of the Carolina Thread Trail.
On its website, Great Outdoor Provision, Co. Founder Tom Valone explains why his company holds Land Trust Day. “We wanted to give something back to one of the cornerstones of our outdoor clothing and equipment business, a self imposed “earth tax,” if you will. We settled on a donating a percent of sales receipts on National Trails Day in all our Great Outdoor Provision Co. stores. We chose local land trusts as the beneficiary as they acquire land for protection through purchase in the open real estate market or by gift, thereby guaranteeing that the most endangered lands of greatest importance to local communities and regions are protected.”
Throughout the day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., there will be food, beer, music, prizes and information provided. Popular band Stringamajig will be playing bluegrass and master fiddler Glen Alexander will be playing a few tunes! So, come hang out on the porch and enjoy the party, festivities and great shopping!
We hope to see you on June 2 to shop and support Catawba Lands Conservancy!
