About Celebrate Trails Day

Celebrate Trails Day is Saturday, April 27! We hope you will join us, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and people all across the country in celebrating America’s amazing trails this spring.  Celebrate Trails Day is more than a day outside. It’s an opportunity to enjoy your local trails while sharing appreciation for the ways that trails make an impact on our lives and communities.

About Our Work Parties Series

This event is part of our 2024 Volunteer Stewardship Series in partnership with Pierce County Parks. Throughout 2024, the Foothills Coalition will tackle crucial deferred maintenance tasks along the Foothills National Recreation Trail, such as vegetation management, invasive species removal, trash pick up, planting native species and other Crime Prevention by Environmental Design tasks – all the while, providing hands-on stewardship training to volunteers, with a focus on engaging younger and more diverse populations reflective of the communities the Foothills Trail is located in.
