Working in partnership to improve trails in Trione-Annadel State Park
Friends of Trione-Annadel (FOTA) and Redwood Trails Alliance (Trails Alliance) in partnership, combined resources to improve trails and assist Trione-Annadel State Park (TASP)with maintenance and trail repairs.
Friends of Trione-Annadel is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to protecting the health of our treasured local state park, Trione-Annadel. Through donations from the community, FOTA supports the maintenance and development of its trails, structures, and open spaces – ensuring a healthy environment for wildlife and continued accessibility and safety for the public
Redwood Trails Alliance, a 501(c)(3)non-profit is an advocate for our diverse community of trail users. We teach responsible trail stewardship and offer volunteer trail work opportunities along with planning and construction services for trails for all to enjoy.
FOTA donated a Kubota U17 purchased through private donations in an effort to expand capacity to work in Trione-Annadel State Park. After consulting with State Parks Bay Area District leadership the decision was made to donate both the mini-excavator and trailer to Redwood Trails Alliance who has been working on a partnership with FOTA and State Parks as the trail consultant and construction organization to conduct trail repairs.
On January 12, 2022 Friends of Trione-Annadel President, Don McCullough and Redwood Trails Alliance Executive Director, Debbie St.Cyr signed a donation agreement between the two organizations. In the agreement Redwood Trails Alliance will take possession of the Kubota U17, endearingly referred to as FOTA Kubota, for use in Trione-Annadel State Park. Redwood Trails Alliance will add the Kubota to their fleet to be used for maintenance and trail repairs in TASP.
Together, FOTA and Trails Alliance will work towards trail improvements, maintenance and host volunteer trail work days throughout 2022 and 2023. Stay up to date on both organizations and upcoming work they’ll be conducting in the park by becoming a member and supporting future efforts.
