Trails Build Alaska was a statewide advocacy effort championed by Trail Mix to create a trails workforce development program through American Rescue Plan Act funds. By building a trained trails workforce and better access to public lands, we invest in Alaska’s people, land, and economy.
Inspired by Juneau’s own Covid-19 Conservation Corps, the idea garnered bipartisan support in the legislature and across the state, particularly in Southeast. Trail Mix will continue to pursue ways to increase our ability to improve Juneau’s trails.
The Covid-19 Conservation Corps was an investment in our local workforce, outdoor recreation infrastructure, and economic resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
