ForeverGreen Trails is pleased to announce the 7th annual Pierce County Trails Day on Friday through Sunday, July 28-30, a countywide celebration of outdoor active recreation, mobility, and stewardship focused on trails, parks, and natural areas.
“In cooperation and coordination with over 25 agencies and organizations, we have planned free activities across Pierce County, including bicycle rides, interpretive and wildlife viewing, walks, runs, family-friendly guided tours, trail maintenance, and even skateboarding,” said Larry Leveen, executive director of ForeverGreen Trails. Most activities are hosted by a leader, though many are self-guided, allowing people to enjoy them whenever they want, not just this weekend.
“Parks and trails represent some of the most affordable ways for people of all ages, abilities, and income levels to lead healthy, active lifestyles,” Leveen added. “Trails Day helps give everyone a reason to go outside and get some exercise or help care for our natural areas. Plus, it’s easy. Just find an activity that looks interesting and show up — the rest is taken care of for you.” We have a map of all the activities on our website so people can find something near them to enjoy.
