Any donation amount is accepted, and we will be sure to put program sponsor names on marketing materials we create concerning each program.

Trail Extensions

  • we consider the Northern Strand the “backbone” of future trails in the region
  • we are actively advocating for future trail extensions in our various communities
  • each trail extension is at a different stage – some are purely conceptual, some have community feedback, some are moving towards feasibility studies…

Trail Wayfinding

  • we plan to add more bike/ped wayfinding to town centers, roads, and other paths near the Northern Strand trail
  • sponsors would fund cost of advocacy, materials, and installation
