Volunteers Adopt Area Trails

Members of the Smith River Trail System's Adopt-a-Trail Program met this past week for a pizza dinner and to learn more about how they can help the area trails.  About 6 miles of the Smith River Trail System has been adopted so far and more sections are available. At the meeting the new teams and ones with more experience were able to trade stories and learn from one another.
Teams Represented included:
"Friends of the Fieldale Trail"- 2.5 miles of Fieldale Trail
The Gardner Family- 1 mile of Rhododendron Trail
Girl Scout Troop 691- 0.5 mile of Doe Run Wildlife Trail
Martinsville Uptown Revitalization Association/Boys & Girls Club- 0.6 mile of Uptown Spur Trail
The Tatum & Foley Families- 1 mile of Jones Cliff Trail
The Pitzer Family 0.5 mile of River View and Burgess Loop Trails

If you are interested in becoming an Adopt-a-Trail volunteer there are many ways you can help. You can adopt a section of trail with your business, club, church, or family or you can join up with one of the existing teams. For more information on the program, contact DRBA at 276-634-2545.
