Help Create Trails for Generations

Category News | Posted on June 3, 2016

Land is ready. Plans are approved. All we need is you.

Right now, you have the opportunity to help fund four important trail projects for our community that will extend, connect and create a first-of-its-kind greenway, right here in the Ozarks! We have the necessary easements secured and plans ready to go. Now, we need you.

On National Trails Day, June 4, 2016, we kicked-off an initiative called Trails for Generations, to raise $850,000 to fund the construction of four fantastic trail projects! Whether you're able to support this effort with a small or large donation, you will be able to see the tangible impact of this support this year! More importantly, your help will impact both current and future generations. UPDATE: We're very close to meeting this fundraising goal...!

Or mail your tax-deductible donation made out to: Ozark Greenways, Trails for Generations campaign, P.O. Box 50733, Springfield MO 65805

Every dollar collected goes to build these 4 exciting trail projects!

Fulbright Spring Greenway (formerly South Dry Sac Greenway)
Let's connect the 1.5-mile trail gap from Ritter Springs Park to Lost Hill Farm Park!

Trail of Honor, on James River Greenway --- FUNDED!
The Trail of Honor will be the first greenway trail of its kind in the U.S. to pass through a National Veterans Cemetery! The very special trail section will be a portion of the James River Greenway, and also connect to Galloway Creek Greenway via the river road, to the old iron bridge. This will be a phenomenal opportunity to celebrate the ultimate sacrifice many of our military heroes have made.

Wilson's Creek and South Creek greenways connected --- COMPLETED!
On June 4, 2016, we opened the completed 1.6-mile gap connecting these two popular trails along with the new Tal's Trailhead! This is a great milestone connection for our growing trail network.

Frisco Highline Trail --- FUNDED & IN PROGRESS!
We're upgrading the Frisco Highline Trail, adding a restroom at the Willard Trailhead and making the trail friendlier for use residents, visitors and group events.

So, how do we get there?

Thanks to our incredible community, we are already half-way to our goal! But we need your help to reach our goal to raise $850,000 by the end of 2016. Please explore below to see how we plan to fund our efforts and consider where you fit best! We'll be wrapping up this effort at our annual Fall Dinner & Party on Thursday, September 22. Please call or email us anytime with inquiries and questions!
