The Franklin Township Trails Advisory Committee invites you to celebrate

NATIONAL TRAILS DAY

Come celebrate the beauty of our trails while using your own mobile technology to contribute to a nationwide citizen science project. Every observation helps scientists and resource managers to understand the natural environment that surrounds us. A series of other hikes will be available as well, based on the interests of participants.

This is also a great opportunity to meet members of the TAC and learn about the nearly 60 miles of trails in Franklin Township!
