National Trails Day

It's a little known "holiday" but here at Fontana we think it's an important one!

Every year the first Saturday in June is National Trails Day. It is a day organized by the American Hiking Society to recognize and celebrate America's trail system. Everyone is encouraged to seek out, learn about, and enjoy trails in his or her area. With over 200,000 miles of trails in the US we have a lot to enjoy!

It is also a day to step back and recognize the many hours of labor, planning, and fund raising it takes to develop and maintain trails.

CELEBRATE National Trails Day with FONTANA!

On June 6th from 9 am to noon volunteer your time and help us clear invasive species from along the Capitol City Bike Trail. Your work will help provide clear and open vistas for all trail users.

We will meet at Lussier Family Heritage Center, 301 Lake Farm Rd, Madison, WI 53711.
All Volunteers will recieve a free pair of Wigwam sock and lunch.

RSVP to Elizabeth at 608-257-5043 or elizabeth@fontanasports.com
Or...just get out and enjoy your own favorite trail, maybe bring a bag and pick up some litter...
Have Fun!
