Help Raise $60,000 for Local Trails
Breathtaking vistas, oak forests, rich farmland and scenic rivers – community trails open these landscapes for recreation and inspiration. The Land Trust has built over 35 miles of local public access trails which are used by hikers, runners, mountain bikers, equestrians, strollers and wheelchairs - made possible by YOU!
A very generous local donor has come forward with an inspiring challenge – to double every dollar you give to build local trails, up to $30,000. Big gifts, small gifts…all are important in this effort.
Building trails is only possible with your support. Please help Bear Yuba Land Trust secure $30,000 in matching funds and reach our goal of $60,000 to build local trails!
