We got a note from the good folks at Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail.
Great news! The North Carolina General Assembly just passed a budget that retains full funding of $108,000 for Adopt-a-Trail, despite the extremely tough financial situation faced by state government this year.
Thanks for your help in telling legislators about the value of the program. Legislators told me they were hearing from constituents, and that really made a difference in such a difficult year.
Please take a moment now to thank your legislators for supporting the program. They will appreciate it, and it will help strengthen the support for future funding.
Please feel free to call (919-698-9024) or e-mail me if you have questions or need more information. Adopt-A-Trail is such a valuable program, and FMST wants to do what it can to keep it going.
Thanks for your commitment to trails in North Carolina!
