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/
