Dear Local Businesses,
We’d like to extend an Invitation to Sponsor a Trail Work Party in Fairhaven Park.
You and your employees value the importance of access to open space in our public lands. We’d appreciate your support for improving access for people into Fairhaven Park while restoring a damaged wetland in the process. The second phase of our Stewardship of Fairhaven Park project needs your help.
Please become a Trail Work Party Sponsor for $1,000. You’ll get the satisfaction of knowing that you’re supporting our a great cause. We are a 501 c-3 charitable non-profit, BTW.
Your Company will receive a Recognition Rock, with your Company Name engraved on it, placed at the trailhead for all to see for years to come. We also capture the day and share it through our media channels. Check out the fun that we’ve had with these Trail Work Party Sponsored Events:
Brett, McCandlis and Brown – Fairhaven Park work party – with Troop 7
Trayvax Staff Work Party in Fairhaven Park
Village Books Work Party in Fairhaven Park
Young’s Market Company Charity Day in Fairhaven Park
Work parties consist of 2 hours of light labor with our recruited volunteers and supplemented by your staff (if you’d like). The work is to support our professional trail building crews and native plant restoration efforts.
Trail Work Party Dates:
Sunday, November 12th
Sunday, November 19th
Sunday, December 3rd
We’ve come a long way in the 3 years that we have been working in this public space. Please join us in creating a legacy stewardship project for our community. Check out these links for photos and videos of the trail work building in process:
Fairhaven Park Boardwalk – Clearing the Path
Fairhaven Park Boardwalk – Scraping the Surface
Fairhaven Park Boardwalk – First Layer of Gravel
We hope that you will join the list of our supporters!
