Help us create a countywide trail system
get right to the
point, ForeverGreen Trails – note the name change -- is seeking your
support. We’ve got an exciting new opportunity to take trail advocacy
We are joining with like-minded individuals and groups to form an Active Transportation Community of Interest (COI )as part of the Russell Family Foundation’s 10-year, $10 million Puyallup River Watershed Initiative.
What would this mean
for our trails?
For the first time we could have a true county-wide coalition of advocates working for an active transportation network stretching from Mount Rainier to Puget Sound. We could lay groundwork for a sustained effort to educate the public and elected officials about the benefits of an integrated system of trails, bike lanes and local pathways – and the need to fund it.
Let's stop talking about a trail network.
We want to get it built. We must work together. Foundation staff has helped us develop the grant proposal. A formal decision is due this summer. If it’s a “go” the COI will hire a community organizer/planner to implement a first-year work plan. Depending on yearly progress, the COI could be funded annually for up to 10 years.
Our goal is $6,000.
Every dollar you donate will be matched up to $3,000. We will put your donation to work supporting our partners and continuing our local advocacy efforts, including our annual trail conference.
Please make your donation on line. It’s for a great cause.
