BROCKWAY – Tri-County Rails to Trails will conduct its annual meeting at 7 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Chatterbox Café, located 2.5 miles south of Brockway on Route 219.
The group will be celebrating the major surface improvements on the Clarion-Little Toby Rail Trail that were accomplished during the prior year and made possible by generous donations from local foundations and individuals.
Refreshments will be provided compliments of the Chatterbox.
Steve Putt, district manager of the Elk County Conservation District, will be providing an informative program about invasive plant species, their impact on the environment and how they can be controlled for the health of local forests and waterways – and in your own backyard or garden.
Directors and officers for 2018 will be elected, as well. The organization is pleased to be welcoming many new directors that have expressed interest and commitment.
The trail would not exist without its dedicated volunteer board, with members from Elk and Jefferson counties.
“Much of the work to maintain our valuable trails is accomplished by devoted volunteers, including those who participate in our Adopt-a-Mile program”, explained current President Paul Boboige.
“If you have helped us, or would like to help in the future, we want to see you at the meeting. Or just come out to show your support to the people who keep the trail available to you and your family”.
