Are you a Friend of the Fieldale Trail?

The Fieldale Trail is growing and it needs YOUR help! Thanks to a grant from the Dominion Foundation, DRBA has acquired funding to extend the existing trail by one mile downstream along the Smith River. That means more trail for walking, biking, birdwatching, and jogging!

Three volunteer workdays are planned this fall to begin developing the trail:

Sunday, October 19th, from 2-5pm
Wednesday, October 22nd, from 10-2pm
Sunday, November 2nd, from 2-5pm

Tasks will include: Removing debris, trimming back limbs, and clearing the path for mechanized trail building equipment to come in on a later date. Refreshments will be provided for all volunteers.

Volunteers can register for a date by contacting Jennifer Doss at 276-634-2545 or Information packets for the workdays will be provided to registered volunteers.
