East Montpelier Trail Users and Supporters: Mallory Brook Trail Fundraising Challenge
Last fall we launched a fundraising campaign to improve the beautiful Mallory Brook Trail between Johnson Rd and Cherry Tree Hill Road. We are happy to report that we have received almost $2000 towards our goal of raising $4000 from the community. We are half way there!
Trail builder extraordinaire Greg Western worked through the fall of 2012 to repair rock stair stream crossings damaged damaged during the flood of May 2011, and make them resilient for any future flooding, as well as to improve other troubling wet spots. He will begin the final phase of repairing the stream gullies in June of this year. Please stop by and check out his amazing stone and wood handwork while you enjoy a walk on this unique trail, or sign up for a volunteer work day.
And of course, your generous donation will be greatly appreciated. We still have $2000 left to raise! If you've ever been grateful to have these fine and varied trails right in our community, this is a great chance to join the effort.
In addition, volunteers are welcome to help on the trail. Send your email address to Dave at email@example.com and we will let you know when we have work dates. Greg Western is a trail genius and you will learn a lot.
Donate: any amount you can give is appreciated. We will acknowledge all donors unless you state that you wish to remain anonymous. Please send checks to East Montpelier Trails at:
