After a successful inaugural year, we are excited to once again partner ART 321 for the launch of the 2021 Art for the Trails Public Art Market. This exhibition combines the incredible artistic talent in our community with the creative inspiration of the Platte River Trails; offering an incredible experience for our community to enjoy.
Spring is almost here, and with it, opportunities to support our mission by sponsoring our signature events and programs. Our trails create connections to work, shopping, recreation and most importantly to one another. These connections positively affect our quality of life, economic development, property values, tourism and our community's health and wellness.
We are excited to offer a variety of 2021 sponsorship opportunities (and benefits to you and/or your company) that help fund our efforts to connect people to places.
Though we couldn’t all gather as normal this year, the 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting was a successful event, recapping 2020 trail successes and highlighting future trail plans. Executive Director Angela Emery kicked off the presentation at noon on February 17th to 50 attendees from the volunteer board, community, and media.
Though 2020 was a challenging year for all, there are many accomplishments the PRTT is proud to celebrate. We look forward to highlighting the past year as well as showcasing our plans for the future at our virtual Annual Meeting, Wednesday, February 17th, starting at 12:00 pm.
Organizations are only as strong as the leaders involved in them. At the Platte River Trails Trust, we are lucky to have twenty volunteer board members, who are committed to donating their time, expertise and personal resources to bring our trail projects to fruition.
Our trails have always been the connector for people to get outdoors and explore our community’s beautiful surroundings. This year has shown just how important our trail system is, in providing open spaces for recreation, refuge, reflection and rejuvenation.
The holiday season is almost here! Whether you are gathering for a “Friendsgiving” feast or enjoying Christmas cocktails with your company, the Tate Pumphouse is the perfect location for your holiday gathering. Located at 1775 W. First St. Casper, WY 82601, the historic Tate Pumphouse offers stunning views of the Platte River and Casper Mountain, providing the perfect backdrop for your holiday gathering.
Have you ever been curious about how our community trail system came to be or thought, “what is that oil derrick and why is it on the trail?” Platte River Trails Trust’s Executive Director, Angela Emery, answers those questions, plus many others on The WYpod.
28 years ago, Platte River Trails held the first Riverfest event in Casper, celebrating the completion of the newest section of the River Trail. The decision to cancel this year’s event was a very tough one for Platte River Trails Trust to make; as we’ll not only miss the chance to gather with our community to celebrate our trail building successes, we’re also going to miss the financial support this event provides our organization. Platte River Trails welcomed Rotary Club of Casper’s Great Duck Derby to Riverfest in 2000 and the event that had already included craft beer tasting, live music, delicious food trucks, and all kinds of family fun added throughout the years now had one more exciting element. Aside from a beloved community event, Riverfest is also the biggest fundraising event for Platte River Trails and a chance to celebrate the River Trail and the North Platte River corridor.
The inaugural year of Platte River Trails newest program, Art for the Trails, kicked off last Friday, July 10th with a successful Opening Reception at the Tate Pumphouse! From 5pm – 8 pm, ticketed guests enjoyed music by the Corey McDaniel Duo, drinks from Urban Bottle, delicious bites from Ludovico's and Papa's Pork Chops, and the company of fellow art lovers and trail supporters.
