Save Lake Serene Trail Happy Hour
One of the most popular hikes in the region is in trouble. Unless $275K is raised by October 30th, the Lake Serene trail will be logged and dramatically changed for decades. We can’t let that happen! Lets drink beer and make sure it doesn’t!
Join us for a Save Lake Serene Happy Hour to learn about the community campaign effort to save the trail and ensure permanent public access!
With a $45+ tax deductible donation to save the lake serene trail, you’ll receive an exclusive member patch! Your donation also includes an invite to a private happy hour at Fremont Brewery on October 24th where the first 200 patch members will receive a refreshing treat from the brewery! Donate at www.saveserene.org
**All are invited to join the Happy Hour and we hope you will consider supporting this great cause!
Did you know that the first portion of the trail is on private property? Well, a section of this beloved trail—enjoyed by over 45,000 hikers of all ages and experience levels each year—is in imminent danger of being logged this fall. Forterra is working to raise funds to purchase the entire 190 acre property that is scheduled to be logged starting this year, destroying the integrity of one of the region’s most highly used trail. Forterra has stepped in to lead the effort to preserve this beloved trail and land. Forterra is working with the landowner to preserve and limit the timber harvest to less than half of the property, protecting the creek, and preventing logging from crossing the trail– minimizing the impact in the short term, ensuring permanent access to users and saving the land and trail in perpetuity. We must raise $275,000 before October 30th to make this happen.
Come learn more about the history of the land and Forterra’s efforts to save the Lake Serene Trail as it fits into a series of critical conservation deals that weave tightly together with work to reduce sprawl by focusing growth in our cities, to protect farmland and to link economic revitalization to outdoor recreation in the corridor, called the Great Northern Corridor Campaign.
