In Nevada County, there are no county parks or a recreation department though city districts provide managed and group recreation amenities such as ball fields and swimming pools. In Yuba County the parks function has been defunded. Community support and volunteer efforts are vital in the development and maintenance of trails. This issue of Land News is dedicated to local trail projects, efforts and opportunities.
Hikers, runners, bicyclists, birders, equestrian riders and more can now show support for their favorite local trails while grabbing a coffee or bite to eat thanks to an ongoing nonprofit program at Summer Thyme’s Bakery and Deli.
Two events this week are poised to push Nevada County trails past the “tipping point” from a loosely organized grassroots effort to a unified system with county leadership.
Once again a generous local donor has come forward with an inspiring challenge – to double every dollar you give to build local trails, up to $40,000. Big gifts, small gifts… all are important in this effort.
