Hey everyone! Exciting news! IMBA is launching a new, multi-year, national fundraising campaign called Dig In. This exciting initiative provides a platform for donations, and there are corporate sponsors and matching donation opportunities.

MORE has sponsored Patuxent River State Park as the premier trail project in the Mid-Atlantic Region. We are thrilled to be a part of Dig In! Here is our chapter page:

Patuxent will have characteristics of all the nearby trail systems - Patapsco, MoCo, Frederick. Rocks, roots, flow, river views, climbs, descents; something for everyone. We are ready to go with building the first 8 miles for Phase 1. We are waiting for approval from DNR and MDE to start building. But 25-30 miles of trail will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to build. We need your help! Please consider donating to help us prepare for building, starting as early as this fall/winter.

Here is a map of the Phase 1 corridors, along with the concept maps for Phase 2 and 3. We have a goal for raising $25,000 by the end of the year through IMBA's Dig In program. We hope everyone can help out - even just a few dollars can make a difference.

Thanks!
