Join The Georges River Land Trust for a 3-mile or 6-mile hike along the trails as they host the Georges Highland Path Hike-a-Thon on August 9th!The goal of the Hike-a-Thon is to raise money to maintain and expand the Georges Highland Path, which is a 50-mile trail network that is unique in that it's based on the participation of private landowners who welcome the public to cross their land.With a $20 registration fee and $100 fundraising minimum, participants will enjoy a day on the trails while raising critical funds that will allow the Georges River Land Trust to continue to offer opportunities for the public to fall in love with the land around them."We don't pay the landowners anything and they don't really get much out of it, aside from knowing that they are helping to foster an appreciation and interest in conserving the natural areas in midcoast Maine," said Jay Astle, Stewardship Program Manager at the Georges River Land Trust. In helping to foster this appreciation in the public, the Georges River Land Trusts does not charge user fees on its trails.Eventually, the Georges River Land Trust hopes to have a continuous trail that runs from the top of their watershed to the bottom - closer to 100 miles, rather than the 50 that they have now. In order to that, they need help in raising the funds to continue managing trail conditions and expanding them further."Over the last 4 or 5 years, we've tried to figure out ways that we could raise money - we really rely on the generosity of the public to maintain and expand our trails," said Astle. "This is our first personal fundraising campaign, but we've already been overwhelmed by the success of it. The platform makes it easy to raise money and we're really looking forward to getting more people involved."FOR MORE INFO & TO REGISTER, click here:, START YOUR FUNDRAISING:
