The Safety and Education Committee of the Farmington Valley Trails Council is looking for Trail Council members interested in developing programs to encourage the safe and responsible use of the Farmington Canal Trail and the Farmington River Trail and to enhance the trail experience for all users.
Current projects include examining polite ways to encourage the use of helmets, educating the public on proper trail etiquette, placing the names of intersecting streets on the trail and signs to encourage courteous riding, skating, running and walking.
The education sub-committee seeks to develop a plan to post markers along the trails to illuminate the rich history of the Farmington Canal and the railroads along whose right of way to trail has been built.
Interested parties should contact Matt Graeber at email@example.com.
