REI Awards Grant to Support the East Bay Regional Park District's Ivan Dickson Volunteer Trail Maintenance Program
The Regional Parks Foundation in partnership with the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) and REI is proud to announce the receipt of a generous $30,000 grant from REI to support the EBRPD’s Ivan Dickson Volunteer Trail Maintenance Program. This award continues to build upon the strength and success of the community engagement and outdoor stewardship efforts of the Park District by encouraging volunteer participation in repairing and enhancing existing trails, and constructing new trails.
For the benefit of the nearly 14 million annual visitors to the Regional Parks, this year, the Regional Parks Foundation and EBRPD in conjunction with local REI stores are sponsoring four events dedicated to trail building and maintenance throughout the Park District. Since 1996, the Ivan Dickson Volunteer Trail Maintenance Program has managed 157 trail projects with 7,837 volunteers contributing more than 30,000 hour of volunteer labor.
We genuinely appreciate REI’s enduring support and generosity. Thank you REI!

Regional Parks Foundation Receives Support for Darden Restaurants
The Regional Parks Foundation is excited to announce that it has received a Restaurant Community Grant from the Darden Foundation! We are proud that Darden Restaurants identified us
as a leader in our community and is supporting the East Bay Regional Park District’s work to restore and preserve water and land ecosystems with a donation of $1,000.
This generous gift will enable the District to purchase a kayak and related equipment for the Delta Water Quality Monitoring Program at Big Break Regional Shoreline. The new kayak and gear will help the community to take a more active role in the study and preservation of this important watershed. We are grateful to everyone at Darden Restaurants who made this donation possible.
