The Great Give is coming!

great-give-logoSupport the Shoreline Greenway Trail the modern way and let your contribution grow! The trail is participating again this year in the Great Give, a dynamic online giving event for nonprofits sponsored by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.

For 36 hours from May 3 at 8 a.m. until May 4 at 8 p.m., your donation will help to make the trail eligible for thousands of dollars in prizes. All you need to do is donate at least $25 to the trail through the Great Give.

Visit https://thegreatgive.org/npo/shoreline-greenway-trail any time during the 36-hour drive,  and click “Donate Now”. Shoreline Greenway Trail will be competing for various matching prizes, including most money raised for an all-volunteer organization, the largest gift, and greatest number of individual donors.

Please tell your friends and family to mark their calendars for the May 3 – 4 event and give, give, give! Your donations will go a long way in helping Shoreline Greenway Trail realize its goal of a 25-mile continuous path for bicyclists, walkers, and hikers of all ages to enjoy the outdoors and to help create healthy communities along the Connecticut shore.

A westward extension of the Shoreline Greenway Trail from Hammonasset Beach State Park is nearly complete. The 750-foot extension, connecting the existing one-mile trail in Hammonasset with Webster Point Road, is open and ready for use while we put a few finishing touches on it.  Walkers, hikers and bikers can now use the trail and local roads rather than a dangerous stretch of Route 1 to travel between Hammonasset State Park, downtown Madison, Madison’s beaches, shoreline recreational facilities and tourist destinations.
