The board of directors of the Sheltowee Trace Association has created a fund within the STA that would honor Karen and David Martin and their lifelong passion for the outdoors and for encouraging users young and old to get out into the forest.
The Karen and David Martin Outdoor Recreation Fund is accepting donations in honor of the Martin. Karen is a member of the STA Hiker Challenge Class of 2017.
Donations will support programs that will introduce boys and girls, families who have limited or no experience to the amazing experiences awaiting in the forest.
Participates will join outdoor opportunities that are structured, designed to introduce participants to the Sheltowee Trace in the Daniel Boone National Forest and the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. An example would be our Introduction to Backpacking Program where beginners, the inexperienced are taken into the woods for a weekend and are taught the basics of backpacking and surviving in the woods.
