Help the Arizona Trail Win a $50,000 Grant for Outdoors Projects!

From:  Arizona Trail Association  (GO VOTE!!)

Congratulations to the Redwood Creek Wine Greater Outdoors Project Top 10 Finalists! One of these organizations will be awarded a $50,000 grant to fund a project that shares Redwood Creek's commitment to preserving, protecting and providing access to the great outdoors.      .Vote for This Organization

The Arizona National Scenic Trail (AZT) is a continuous 800-mile path across Arizona from Mexico to Utah. The AZT offers hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians and outdoor aficionados a unique opportunity to enjoy scenic Arizona.
The Arizona Trail Association is ready to construct a new 11-mile trail in the lush, central Arizona Sonoran desert to replace ten miles that are now on a rocky, eroded road. The new sustainably constructed trail will follow a ridgeline that offers sweeping mountain range and desert valley views.
A more scenic and enduring trail creates a more attractive destination and will entice a greater number of trail enthusiasts to several nearby rural communities. The businesses in these gateway communities can benefit economically, providing trail users and visitors with food, supplies and services.
Mind, body, soul and pocketbook, good trails are good for everyone. Help make this one great!
