Thanks to Lowes and legwork by Linda Lehrbaum from Bridging the Gap and KC Wildlands, Swope Trails received $5k in tools and supplies to be used for our expansion along Blue River Road. THANK YOU!
The work we are doing is very equipment/supply intensive. We spent almost $6000 in building and maintenace at Swope this last year. For example, when building phase 5 this summer the core group of builders were going through pro-grade gloves every 3 weeks of working everyday. Fuel costs totaled almost $1000. This donation is huge for trails in KC.
Our core group of 3 builders each volunteered over 600hrs building this year. Maybe now for 2014 we'll get off our butts and get somtehing done.
Here's to building more sweet singletrack in 2014!
|Merry Christmas, Dirt Lovers!|
