To address the backlog of Flathead Valley trails in need of maintenance and upkeep, FAMB is founding the Flathead Trail Crew. Our professional, paid trail crew will conduct maintenance work on multi-use trails on state land, in the National Forest, and in city and county parks throughout the Flathead Valley. Our crew will start work in Summer 2020, so we are still fundraising for this effort.
Thanks to 103 generous donors, FAMB has already raised $14,720.34 for the Flathead Trail Crew in the 2019 Great Fish Community Challenge. With matching donations courtesy of some very generous, community-minded folks who donated to the Match Fund, this amount was increased by 49% to $22,050.05. We send our heartfelt thanks to the Whitefish Community Foundation for including our project again in the 2019 fundraising campaign, which raised money for our project as well as countless other deserving Flathead Valley nonprofits. We thank our many donors and supporters, as well as donors to the Great Fish Match Fund for supporting the entire community. Even though the Great Fish Challenge is over, there's still time to support FAMB's Flathead Trail Crew and help us ensure that our amazing trail systems stay that way well into the future!
