Friends of the Major Taylor Trail meeting on 2/18

If you're interested in events and stewardship on the Major Taylor Trail, please join us for our monthly meeting on Wednesday 2/18 at Ridge Park fieldhouse, 1817 W 96th St. (just east of Longwood Dr.), 6:30-8:30 p.m.

We are a non-profit advocacy group working to improve and maintain the Major Taylor Trail and promote its use. We have an active working relationship with the Chicago Park District, Friends of the Parks, Openlands, Forest Preserve District of Cook County and other non-profits and government agencies. We organize bike rides, volunteer workdays,  and other events.

In the past few years, we've done 5 tree planting projects with the Openlands TreeKeepers program: near 87th Street and between 122nd and 127th. In the future, we'd like to add public art projects and other improvements along the trail. We'd love to have your ideas and help with future events and projects.  Please join us!
