Platte River Trails Trust is grateful for the opportunity to continue connecting community through trails due in part to a $15,000 grant received from the Wyoming Community Foundation.
As a nonprofit organization, Platte River Trails Trust (PRTT) relies heavily on support from community partners and advocates like the Wyoming Community Foundation in order to provide a non-motorized network of trails for the purpose of preserving our outdoor spaces and improving quality of life for all.
This grant comes at an opportune time as Platte River Trails Trust plans projects and events for 2024 and beyond. Continuing to pursue connections and improvements is an important part of PRTT’s mission, and the organization believes these funds will strengthen its current and upcoming efforts.
“The PRTT Board of Directors and I are incredibly grateful for this grant, and we are excited to put these fund to good use in expanding our trail network to impact and improve our community’s quality of life while preserving our open spaces,” says PRTT Executive Director, Rachel Spear.
PRTT has exciting initiatives and projects on the drawing board, including creating connections from the River Trail and Rail Trail to neighborhoods, completing trail links within and between neighborhoods to create a safe and functional active transportation system in our community, and eventually connecting core trails to key recreational areas like EKW State Park. With the help of this grant, the organization can continue important trail projects and connect more people to nature and the places that keep them surviving and thriving.
