Thank You to the Keta Legacy Foundation for the $16,875 grant the Trail Coalition of Snohomish County to fund a substantial Contribution to Snohomish County Parks Trail Maintenance.

The Trail Coalition of Snohomish County was able to facilitate this generous donation to the Trail Maintenance program at Snohomish County Parks because our status as a 501c3 non profit organization.  This funding will allow Parks to pay for the purchase of major equipment that will be used in ongoing repair needs on the Centennial Trail and other future predictable repair needs such as where tree roots grow under asphalt sections of trail.  Besides the Centennial Trail, the recent paving on sections of the Whitehorse Trail could have eventual similar problems.  County Parks reports that most of this equipment has been purchased.
