Fundraising for DPD Bicycles

Help us raise funds for new Dallas Police Department bicycles. So far, funds have been raised to cover 3 bicycles and we're hoping to help get donations for 2 more, and about $2000 is needed to fully fund this project. These bicycles will be used by DPD officers on the trail! Please consider a donation of any amount to help this cause and support our officers. To donate: https://northaventrail.org/donate/ Thanks for your support!

Volunteer Opportunities

Love the trail and want to get more involved? 2017 will be an exciting year for the trail, and we need your help. We are looking for volunteers and board member candidates to help with our many trail related activities, including fundraising, landscaping, clean up, marketing, advocacy, events, expansion, and more!  Your involvement can be anything from an hour cleaning up the trail, working on landscaping projects, planning events, helping with the expansion efforts, fundraising, or anything else. If you're interested, email info@northaventrail.org.

 

Happy Holidays from FoNHT!

It's been an exciting year for the trail! We've hosted seven trail events - two Park Days, two Movie Nights, Yoga on the Trail, our Light the Trail holiday event last week, and, of course, our second annual Family Fun Color Run 5K. We've also partnered with Eagle Scouts on trail projects, including the new Purple Martin birdhouses just installed at the Freda Stern respite. And we remain on track for expansion both west to Harry Hines and east across Central to connect with the White Rock Creek trail. Both expansion segments are in the design stage now and we are hopeful construction will start in mid or fall 2017. If you've enjoyed the events, or are excited about expansion, or just want to help keep the trail safe and clean, please consider making a tax deductible donation before year end. All donations of $100 or more will qualify for a new engraved brick on the trail. Our funding comes 100% from donations, so everything helps: https://northaventrail.org/donate/

Happy Holidays and see you on the trail!
