CLS Rail Trail: Last Few Feet Campaign

In 2017, The Friends of the Concord Lake Sunapee Rail Trail started the project near Exit 7 of I-89 to connect the existing Stevens rail trail coming up from Contoocook to a future rail trail that will lead into Warner.  A big part of this effort was building a connector around Knoxland Equipment and over to Warner Road.  This project has had a total cost of $118,000 and we are in the LAST FEW FEET of making this section of trail open and available for the community.

We raised the first $100,000 and that has been all paid out.  We are now raising the final $18,000.  We've gotten lots of people involved, including 100% of our board of directors ($4600).  We've posted our offline donations to this campaign so we can celebrate those people and companies that are helping make this LAST FEW FEET possible.

Want to join me in making this last few feet happen? I'm Darryl Parker and I am a founding board member of the Friends of the Concord Lake Sunapee Rail Trail and we are raising money to buildtrail. Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to our community .  Any contribution over and above this ask will be applied to the upcoming projects on the trail.

The CLSRT is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and contributions are tax deductible.

Does your employer offer matching grants?  If so, let us know and we will add their name and their match to our total here as an "offline donation" so that we can celebrate their support as well!
