Sustainer’s Circle donors are those who contribute $1,000 or more to TART Trails annually. They provide important funding that allows TART Trails to work towards our strategic goals.

Learn more about joining the Sustainer’s Circle of Donors here!

Sustainer’s Circle donors are invited each year to our Oktoberfest celebration, an annual gathering of the TART Trails family. Executive Director Julie Clark provides updates on projects, programs and what lies ahead. The annual Jim Mudgett Trail Pioneer Award is also presented to a regional champion of trails.

TART Trails also hosts a number of Sustainers’ events each year. These fun and informal events give us a chance to get out on the trails together and provide a chance for Sustainers to learn more about the network they are helping to support. Click here to view the 2020 Sustainer’s Circle of Donors events.

Contact Casey at or 231.941.4300 for more information.
