Give Methow Donations Support New Trail Project in Methow Valley

We are excited to share some good news today: the first project of the Methow Trails Collaborative – opening the Falls Creek/Burch Mountain FS #518 trail – was a success!

The Methow Trails Collaborative formed last year with a mission to join forces with other partners to increase efficiency in opening and maintaining trails across the Methow Valley.

In October, the Collaborative sought donations for this first “Save-A-Trail” project through Give Methow, an online crowdfunding campaign hosted by the Community Foundation of NCW.

Donations from 46 generous individuals provided over $5,000 in funding to support the project.

In addition, over 300 hours of labor was put into the trail in one weekend thanks to 56 individuals who love and care about the beautiful trails of the Methow Valley.
“This event shows the profound impact and experience you can have when our trail community converges” said Jon Albright of Methow Trails.

A list of individuals who contributed both time and money to this project can be found at here.

The Methow Trails Collaborative includes: the Methow Valley Ranger District, Methow Trails, Washington Trails Association, Evergreen Mountain Bike Association, the Methow Valley Backcountry Horsemen, Methow Snowmobile Association, Pacific Crest Trail Association, Rendezvous Huts, guides and outfitters, backcountry skiing, mountaineering, trail running, dirt biking and ATV clubs.

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

The Regional Impact Grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
