Support Your Local Turtle Fund Drive

40 years and still plenty of work to do to keep  the Sheltowee Trace NRT open and accessible for all users.  For 10 years the STA has been working with our partners, the Daniel Boone National Forest and the Big South Fork NRRA to relocate the Trace, rebuild bridges, improve directional signs and blazing.  Still everyday brings new challenges that require volunteer support and funding. 

In 2020 we need your help raising funds to replace three bridges in the Big South Fork, build that staircase over at Mouth of Laurel, continue to update and replace signs at the 68 road crossings.  We also need your help raising funds to purchase small tracks of land for future trailheads or primitive camps along the Trace for the growing number of adventurers coming on to the Trace.

If your concerned about the long term future of the Trace and the work of the STA, please consider a contribution towards the Legacy Fund and help us reach our end of year goal of $30,000.00.  Help us keep the Turtle on track by making your tax deductible contribution now before the end of the year and help us continue the success we have had for the last ten years.
