GVLT’s Trails Challenge, educational walks back for 2021
Lace up! National Trails Day marks the start of the Gallatin Valley Land Trust’s 6th annual Summer Trails Challenge. The seasonal community mileage bank will be open June 5th–25th.
During the challenge, GVLT will receive $1 from the Community Match Pool, donated by local businesses, for every mile that is biked, hiked, walked or run on local trails and logged online. 1 mile = $1. It’s that simple!
This year’s goal is 65,000 miles. Yours will help GVLT continue to expand and enhance the Main Street to the Mountains trail system. See website for further details and to start logging.
Also this month, GVLT continues to present its popular trail exploration series, Discovery Walks. Join volunteer guides to walk, talk and explore on the trails while meeting locals and learning something new along the way.
Upcoming walks will incorporate themes of yoga, birding, wildflowers, insects and various outdoor recreational activities, among others. These one-hour, guided, educational walks are totally FREE and open to the public. Volunteers and local experts will be hosting short talks and activities during the walks.
Visit www.GVLT.org for a complete schedule of Discovery Walks and access to the Summer Trails Challenge mileage logger.
