Momentum Climbing Gym to Benefit Texas Land Conservation on National Trails Day

HOUSTON, TX – May 18, 2018 – Rock climbing is a test of strength, endurance, and problem solving, but on June 2nd it’s even more than that – at Momentum Climbing Gyms in Houston and Katy, it’s a chance to support one of the most successful land conservation organizations in Texas – Bayou Land Conservancy.

“Climbing and conservation have always gone hand in hand,” said Momentum marketing director Matt Ward. “This event will bring together two worlds that really compliment each other.”

The event on June 2nd will also celebrate National Trails Day, and it will feature climbing, food from local restaurants, and a chance to learn from local climbing enthusiasts. In addition to the two Momentum locations, another Katy climbing gym, Texas Rock Gym, will also be supporting the event. Fifteen percent of the proceeds from the gyms that day will benefit Bayou Land Conservancy.

“Climbing is a sport that we do inside and outside of the gym and we want to support organizations that protect and conserve natural lands and homes in Texas,” Ward said.

The Bayou Land Conservancy currently preserves nearly 12,500 acres of land, and it is dedicated to protecting the floodplain green spaces surrounding bayous. More conserved lands means more safe places for water to go without endangering communities.

“We’re so excited that Momentum Climbing Gym is partnering with Bayou Land Conservancy to celebrate National Trails Day,” said Bayou Land Conservancy Executive Director Jill Boullion. “This day is promoted nationally each year to help people get connected to a trail that they love and learn the story of the outdoors.”

Momentum owns and operates next generation climbing gyms in Texas, Utah, and Washington. Momentum aims to teach the skills and training climbers need to be successful on the mountain, and in life. They have tools for climbers of all levels, from beginners to elite climber athletes, and provide a space for members from all walks of life. Locations and information can be found at
