Support September

Venture Out Project logo

Each September, Cnoc Outdoors pledges 10% of the revenue from our website to an organization working hard to keep up our trails and care for our communities. For 2019, our recipient is The Venture Out Project, an organization that leads backpacking and wilderness trips for the queer and transgender community.

In addition, they provide educational programs in order for colleges (especially trip leaders), middle and high schools, camps, and other youth-serving organizations to gain knowledge, awareness, and skills to create trans-inclusive and affirming communities.

The Venture Out Project Expedition


In 2018, we raised $2700 that went to Oregon Natural Desert Association, for their protection and restoration of the Oregon Desert Trail

In 2017, the recipient was Friends of the Columbia Gorge. With Cnoc customers, we raised just shy of $2500 to help restore trails after the Eagle Creek fire.
