SJ Trails group nominated for state award
The San Juan Island Trails Committee is one of 30 groups in Washington state nominated for one of three awards by Feet First, a statewide organization supporting the creation of healthy, safe, and vibrant places for people to walk.
The Trails Committee was selected for its Know Your Island Walks series, a four-year-long program featuring tours of public places of interest led by local experts every fourth Saturday.
Conceived and organized by the Trails Committee’s Eileen Drath, the program invites residents and visitors to walk in the National Park, Land Bank properties, State Park, County Park, the Airport, and other places of interest and beauty. Leaders are chosen for their expertise in the history and other aspects of selected areas.
Drath will go to Seattle on April 3 for a program at Pike Place Market at which she will explain the Know Your Island Walks—and perhaps receive an award. She will be accompanied by Bill Severson, Trails Committee chairman, Leslie Veirs, and perhaps other members of the committee.
