Riverfest, presented by Foss Motors, is Platte River Trail’s biggest fundraiser of the year. In addition to highlighting what makes Casper great—our beautiful river and the amazing community that lives here—the proceeds from this beloved event support our community trail system. This year, proceeds will specifically support the Paradise Valley bridge project, helping us connect people to places from the west-side to the east.
Public art, particularly along trails, improves quality of life for residents by bringing art outside and allowing trail users the opportunity to have an experience with art without ever entering a building. This is why the Platte River Trails Trust, in partnership with ART 321, is excited to announce the artists and exhibits for the second year of “Art for the Trails, A Public Art Market.”
Spring is finally here to stay, and we need your help getting our trails ready for the summer season full of walking, biking, and exploring! There are so many reasons to get involved and volunteer for the annual Spring Clean Up, Saturday May 29th in Casper!
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.
