Grant will bring free beginner mountain bike program to Brown County SP
Start Date: 1/22/2020
Event Description:

Brown County State Park will use a $10,000 Give Adventure Grant from the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation (INRF) to create a free beginner mountain bike program. 

The park will use the grant to purchase a fleet of mountain bikes, safety equipment, and a trailer. The park will use this equipment to provide free workshops to those who sign up to participate. These workshops will provide attendees with beginner mountain bike skills, lessons, and the chance to hit the trail for the first time. While the workshops will be free, participants will be charged the usual gate admission fee.

A kickoff event is being planned for spring, as is an announcement of sign-up procedures for the workshops, which will be offered throughout the recreation seasons.

INRF Give Adventure Grants seek to engage youth and families across the state in an introductory exploration of natural resources and outdoor recreation. The grant encourages events and programs emphasizing interactive activities that teach outdoor skills and sustainable conservation practices.

Brown County State Park (on.IN.gov/browncountysp) is at 1450 S.R. 46 E in Nashville, 47448.
