"Trails, and Trusses, and Travelers! Oh my!"

Trusses from the historic Fieldale Iron Bridge are shown above on a truck provided by project sponsor Craddock Logging Supply & Repair. The incorporation of these trusses into a local trail as educational art is just one of the exciting programs that participants will learn about while attending “Trails, and Trusses, and Travelers! Oh My!”
The Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) would like to invite the public to attend a special presentation entitled “Trails, and Trusses, and Travelers! Oh my!” It will be held on Tuesday, July 14th from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Fieldale Community Center.

The presentation, led by Jennifer Doss of DRBA, will showcase places where residents and visitors can enjoy walking, biking, fishing, nature watching, and paddling in Martinsville and Henry County. Participants will also learn about special projects centered on area trails such as the preservation of trusses from the historic Fieldale Iron Bridge and the Adopt-a-Trail program.

If you would like to learn more about the future of our area trails, how they are benefiting our community, and how you can get involved; please attend this informative presentation.

DRBA’s Rivers & Trails project and the Adopt-a-Trail program are funded by a two-year grant from the Harvest Foundation which is dedicated to making Martinsville / Henry County the community of choice by enhancing opportunities and quality of life for all of its citizens.

For more information on these programs or the public presentation, please contact Jennifer Doss at 276-634-2545 or
