The allure of unplugging from technology and reconnecting with nature is drawing more and more people outdoors, making the Trail Conference’s efforts more important than ever. Join us in celebrating the people who protect our connection with nature and “Keep It Wild” at the 3rd Annual Trail Conference Gala on Thursday, October 19.

Keynote speaker: Gregory Frux, Brooklyn-based artist, hiker, and adventurer, will share his perspective on the importance of experiencing wilderness, whether that’s in our backyards or on the other side of the planet. On view during the gala will be Gregory’s Northeast Wilderness exhibit, featuring oil paintings depicting locations diverse as the Shawangunks and Patagonia.
During the festivities, we will be acknowledging the exceptional work and dedication to trails and open space of the Trail Conference’s 2017 corporate, REI, and public, Bergen County Dept of Parks, honorees.
The night will also include live entertainment, farm-fresh hors d’oeuvres, local craft beverages, an auction with several experience items, and more.
