Pathfinders for Greenways was incorporated in 1997 to be a non-profit organization to involve citizens in greenways. Pathfinders provides a forum for involvement of volunteers, coordination of work days, greenway promotional events, and fund raising. The Pathfinders have been particularly effective in building and maintaining natural surface trails. Membership is open to all citizens.

If you want to get your hands dirty working on greenway projects and building local trails, then sign up on our volunteer list so we can email you about our upcoming projects.
