Fredericksburg Trails Alliance and the Duff McDuff Green, Jr. Fund of the Community Foundation
July 8, 2019
The Fredericksburg Trails Alliance fosters healthy living by offering and supporting events that encourage active lifestyles and promote fitness and wellness in our community for all age groups. The organization is developing and maintaining a vibrant trail system throughout our region.
After this year’s storms, the need for trail maintenance was great. A grant from the Duff McDuff Green, Jr. Fund purchased specialized equipment and materials to replace a frequently used footbridge traversing a small creek. Three sections of trail also required gravel and pavers. The grant is maximizing Fredericksburg Trails Alliance’s trail workday events by getting more volunteers involved and creating a stronger sense of stewardship for our trails and the environment.
