EAGLE AND GIRL SCOUT PROJECTS
Scouts contribute in so many positive ways to Rome and Floyd County and TRED has been lucky to be the beneficiary of several Boy and Girl Scout projects. Birdhouses, picnic tables, a trailhead kiosk and benches are just a few amazing additions to the trails donated by Scouts.
Project ideas: bat boxes and picnic tables at Jackson Hill and GE Trails, trailhead kiosk at Blossom Hill, tree plantings at GE Trails,
LOVE YOUR TRAIL
Litter isn't cool anywhere and certainly not on the trails! Until people stop throwing trash out of car windows and throwing it on the ground, TRED will continue the efforts to pick up trash and road debris along the trails.
If you or your organization is interested in a clean up event, contact us. We provide all materials (gloves, grabbers, bags) and help coordinate details. Also, if you see trash along the trail, please pick it up and place it in the nearest garbage can.
HONOR A SPECIAL PERSON WITH A TREE
Did you know that the ECO Greenway has an arboretum? An arboretum is a botanical garden devoted to trees. The ECO Greenway arboretum is located on the Ridge Ferry Trail behind Chieftains Museum. Your purchase includes a native species tree and a personalized concrete plaque honoring or memorializing your special someone. Trees can be purchased through Hannah Bagley at Keep Rome Floyd Beautiful.
More information and to purchase a tree can be found HERE.
