The Access Fund’s educational work is a vehicle for building the capacity of individual climbers and local climbing organizations, empowering them to protect the lands they climb on. Our goal is to mainstream the climbing access mission through educational offerings that span the breadth of the Access Fund’s focusfrom effective public and private land management practices, to writing a climbing management plan, respecting and lessening impact on the climbing environment, political activism strategies, stewardship and conservation guidance, how to start a successful local climbing organization, and information about what’s going on in your backyard.
The Access Fund also works to educate public and private land managers and policy makers on the mechanics and culture of climbing, risk management, and how to lessen impact.

We invite you to explore our menus for education resources specific to each of our core programs.
