PosterGarden has designed and produced the Portland Parks & Gardens Trekking Pole, a lightweight, customizable trekking pole that hikers and walkers can use as they explore the trails at Portland Audubon's Wildlife Sanctuaries. Net proceeds benefit Portland Audubon and eight other participating Portland-area parks and gardens through PosterGarden's Fund for Arts, Culture & Gardens, which helps organizations in the community discover and advance innovative ways of enhancing their development efforts.
“We are truly excited to be part of this innovative partnership that will help generate support for Portland Audubon,” said Meryl Redisch, Executive Director. “This new trekking pole will be a great way for people to get out and really explore our sanctuaries and support it at the same time.”
The high-quality, adjustable trekking pole is made of sturdy aluminum and features a comfortable, ambidextrous grip, a spring-loaded anti-shock system, a lanyard, and a carbide tungsten tip. The pole can also be customized with a range of optional features, including an LED flashlight grip, a compass, a digital camera mount, a PRO grip for mounting larger cameras or spotting scopes, and various tips and baskets.
In addition to Portland Audubon, eight other parks and gardens have partnered with PosterGarden and will benefit from the program. They include: Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, Forest Park Conservancy, Hoyt Arboretum, Portland Japanese Garden, Lan Su Chinese Garden, Leach Botanical Garden, Pittock Mansion, and Washington Park Rose Garden.
The Portland Parks & Gardens Trekking Pole is available for $55 and can be purchased here.
“We are big fans of our city’s wonderful parks and gardens,” said PosterGarden CEO Travis Rigby. “People here love them, and now they have an easy way to enjoy them and give a little something back.”
