2015 Walnut Valley Metric

Our annual fundraising event, the Walnut Valley Metric, is coming up! Please mark your calendars for September 27th and come join the fun!

For more information and entry form, please see our events page.

Sunflower Foundation Grant

Our Sunflower Foundation Grant application was submitted by the deadline. We met our $55,000 matching goal with two individuals that stepped up to the plate to cover the shortfall. In other words, to reduce their share we are still gladly taking either pledges or donations! With AmeriCorps NCCC volunteers coming we hope we will be the lucky recipients of the grant. It is highly competitive and we will find out April 19th if we were selected. The cost of our goals of what we want to accomplish surpasses the donations and matching grant amount. We need limestone, bridge reconstruction, signage, benches, bollards, cables, and more, so again we are still open to donations to get it all done!

The AmeriCorps NCCC volunteers (8 to 12) will be arriving April 23rd, John Moore will be coordinating their work schedule. We are sharing them with AARTI (Andover Augusta Rail Trail Initiative) as they work on the Redbud Trail. So John does not feel tied down for 13 weeks, we need a volunteer per week to help everyday during that week with their assignment. It does not mean being there at all times but making sure John has help and all runs smoothly. So please let us know if this interests you. The potential of getting the trail mostly done by the end of the summer is exciting!

Trail Benefits

Everyone wins with the preservation of transportation corridors and the development of linear trails: the nation retains a vital resource, the public gains a place to safely walk or ride, the railroads retain the right to restore rail service in the future, small towns can receive an economic boon, and adjacent landowners obtain access to a recreational facility and increased property values.

By helping to preserve Kansas' heritage and recreational opportunities, you will be giving your children and grandchildren an irreplaceable gift - living history. If the linear trails project cannot be kept on track, so to speak, the corridors may be lost forever. That is why Prairie Travelers needs your help.
