Our Community Efforts

Community has always been important to us, more important than checking a box or writing a check, and more important than adding our logo to the contributors list. Roads Rivers and Trails' owners contribute hundreds of hours every year to volunteering in our city, within our parks, and with groups that promote the outdoors. We organize and lead events and efforts to build trails and clean rivers, and we encourage both employees and customers to get involved.

Our stewardship is important to the success and future of what we hold dear. We push our financial limits to help out whenever possible, contribute and maintain memberships with many organizations, and donate goods or services to others. While these organizations don't account for every partnership, please review some organizations that we truly believe in and please consider donating your own time or money to help them succeed in their mission. As a member of 1% For The Planet, RRT has dedicated 1% or greater of our revenue to go to environmental organizations. Our community partners receive both dedicated funds and unique opportunities for events, fundraising opportunities, and collaborations that further organizational missions.
