Rock/Creek Helps Save (and Maintain) Stringer’s Ridge

TPL_logo_stamp.gifThe Trust for Public Land and the City of Chattanooga has partnered with multiple local businesses such as Rock/Creek and non-profits like the Boonies, to present the first trail maintenance day at Stringer’s Ridge on August 29, 2009 from 9:00am- 12:00pm.
This extensive campaign with the Trust for Public Land, is a grassroots movement for the local community to save and preserve land from future development. Now, come be a part of the success and bring your skills to assist; with such a variety of trades and practices represented, it is a true community event you do not want to miss.

Two staging groups will meet and disperse for the day from High Ridge Road or Bell Avenue. Outdoor organizations, scout troops, church youth groups, and other interested volunteers are encouraged to come help. SORBA and The Boonies will provide garbage bags, tools, and special giveaways from local bicycle shops and outdoor businesses. Volunteers should bring water and work gloves. For more information, email Jason Howard – [email protected] .

Over the past few months, Rock/Creek has promoted fundraising for “Saving Stringer’s Ridge” through a donation matching challenge with our customers called “The Rock/Creek Challenge“.
If you are unable to make it out the day of the trail clean up, please consider making a donation through any of these links to benefit the non-profit Trust for Public Land.
Already, through generous donations from around the Chattanooga area, TPL is able to conduct this first promoted trail maintenance day.
Thank you for your support. We’ll see you out on the trail!
