Spring Outreach & Education Events
The Friends of the Border To Border Trail each year conducts information and outreach efforts to answer questions about the Trail, update the public about Trail construction and educate the public on safe bicycling and walking. Already in April the Friends has had an information table at the Washtenaw Community College (4/11) and Ypsilanti (4/14) Earth Day Festivals and is planning on also being at the following events:
Ann Arbor Earth Day – Sunday, April 28, 12pm to 4pm, Leslie Science Center https://www.lesliesnc.org/a2earthday
Huron River Day – Sunday, May 19, 12pm to 4pm, Gallup Park in Ann Arbor https://www.a2gov.org/departments/Parks-Recreation/play/Pages/Huron-River-Day.aspx
Ann Arbor Green Fair – Friday, June 14, 6pm to 9pm, Main Street https://www.a2gov.org/departments/systems-planning/planning-areas/climate-sustainability/Pages/GreenFair.aspx
Oberun Run – Friday, June 21, information table from 5pm to 9pm – Benefit run for the B2B Trail at Wiards Orchard in Ypsilanti Township - http://runoberun5k-ypsi.com
If attending any of these events, please stop by the Friends table for maps, informational handouts and have your questions answered. Also, we are always in need of additional volunteers to help with informational displays. New helpers are always paired with more experienced volunteers and will also receive more detailed emails about current B2B projects. If interested in helping out, contact Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 734-487-9058.
