SUPPORT THE TRAILS THIS WEEK

Posted by | The News |

Many of us are looking for fun new places to ride! The Greenway Alliance is working hard to connect the trail system here in North East Florida. This week they will be having 2 dedications near by.

 

Thursday, May 9, at 10:00am, there will be a ceremony at the Armstrong crossing. It will be a great day to support the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and their efforts to make more trails for us to use. You can see the flyer for this event below, they are asking to RSVP.


We  will officially designate the

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

as part of the

East Coast Greenway

 

Join local and state dignitaries as we celebrate this important trail connection on

May 9th  at  10 a.m.

At the trail crossing of Armstrong Road. Parking is available at Armstrong Park, 4950 Harvey Avenue, Elkton, FL 32033.

 After the ceremony, lunch and a guided tour will be provided.

 Please RSVP (if possible) to Emily.L.Rodriguez@dep.state.fl.us
