Positive Tracks has granted Lost Mountain/Ukalene Productions, via Additive Adventure by Majka Burhardt, a matching challenge grant to double the dollars raised by our Positive Tracks Next Gen Ambassadors Charlie Harrison and Grant Bemis.

Charlie and Grant were our Next Gen Volunteers on the Lost Mountain 2014 expedition and on August 18th, Charlie launched his next fundraising push via his hike to Williams college this fall.  Williams is 160 miles away from his home in Etna, NH and Charlie is hiking to school over the span of a week and raising money for the next steps of the integrated conservation future for Mt Namuli. You can read more about it in his recent blog and see the music video we made in honor and support of the youth fundraising challenge here:

The Positive Tracks Next Gen Lost Mountain Short Film

An adapted 5-7 minute short of the full Lost Mountain Film featuring the Positive Tracks Next Gen ambassadors. This short carries a targeted message for young people about the power of collaboration, following one’s passion, and having an impact through physical activity. This short is produced in partnership with Positive Tracks, a national nonprofit that encourages youth philanthropy through sports. The Positive Tracks Lost Mountain Short effects a broad call to action to young people across the planet to get outside and leverage their own sweat to activate global conservation impact.





In addition to the challenge grant above, Positive Tracks has come on board with funds to help create and market a Lost Mountain Positive Tracks Next Gen Short Film that will spread the Lost Mountain conservation call to action to all ages across the world. Together, Positive Tracks, Charlie Harrison, Grant Bemis, Additive Adventure by Majka Burhardt, and Ukalene Productions are empowering young people to experience the power of hands-on philanthropy and connecting to a cause on their own terms and turf.

We are honored to work with this amazing organization. Please Join Us!

The Lost Mountain Expedition welcomed Positive Tracks Next Gen climbers Charlie Harrison (19, from Etna, NH) and Grant Bemis (23, from Golden Valley, MN) on the 2014 expedition to push the bounds of science, adventure, and conservation.  Exploration of this trifecta culminates in The Lost Mountain Film and The Lost Mountain Positive Tracks Nex Gen Short Film (both forthcoming in 2015).

Collaboration, climbing & conservation. . .what’s not to LOVE?

[…] A month ago I finished up my time volunteering on the Lost Mountain Project in Mozambique and Malawi.
