This week for our Eight Weeks of Giving Donation Pledge we are donating $1,500.00 to the Greening Youth Foundation (GYF). GYF engages underrepresented Black youth and young adults in the outdoors. Learn more about GYF’s work below and consider donating directly if you have the means! You can learn more about our Giving Pledge via our first blog post in this series here.
Here at Coral & Tusk, nature is central to all we create! The great outdoors inspires our designs, our practices, and serves as a necessary outlet to us on a personal level. Our Pinedale, WY office is in close proximity to pristine wilderness that every member of our team has had the opportunity to enjoy. We believe wholeheartedly that this opportunity, to experience nature in a safe and delightful way, should be extended to everyone.
