Thank you for #ShoalCreekSocialDistancing with us!

#ShoalCreekSocialDistancing Fundraiser & Photo Scavenger Hunt has ended and we are so grateful to everyone that participated in our campaign! With your help, we met our goal and raised just over $10,000 to support the future of the Shoal Creek Trail & Watershed! Thank you!

We hope you keep celebrating Shoal Creek by visiting the trail, joining us for an upcoming event, subscribing to our monthly newsletter, or continuing to support our work. We’ll see you on the trail soon!
