Nevada County Celebration of Trails Day Fair today was a success. Thanks to all the folks who participated, it was awesome to see groups and businesses who support the outdoors and trails gathered in one spot. BYLT Outreach Coordinator Laura Petereson said, “It was the best turn out ever. It was so fabulous to see all these great organizations here to promote and encourage trails. We are really hoping to build on the momentum for future collaborations.” Shaun Clarke, BYLT’s Trail Coordinator, said, “It’s great to see people interested in improving the community where they live.” Thanks to the U.S. Forest Service for hosting the event and Smokey the Bear for a visit. Musa Musa provided some yummy food, Three Forks Bakery & Brewery the beer while Ragged But Right provided live music.
Booths included: Bear Yuba Land Trust, Inn Town Campground, Tahoe National Forest, SYRCL, The Sierra Fund, Gold Country Trails Council, Sierra Club, BONC & YBONC, Wildlife Rehab and Release, Tahoe Rim Trail Association, Forest Trails Alliance, Pacific Crest Trail Association, Trkač Running Store, Mountain Recreation, South Yuba Park Association and Empire Mine State Historic Park.
