Annual Appeal

November 3, 2017

Dear Trail Friends,

Michigan’s state flag contains three Latin mottos: “E Pluribus Unum” (Out of many, one), “Tuebor,” (“I will defend”) and “Si Quæris Peninsulam Amœnam Circumspice,” (“If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you.”). Taken together, they embrace an enduring commitment to preserve and celebrate the natural grandeur of our state, its history and its people.

At Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance we have dedicated ourselves to each of these statements. We help build trails that connect not just places, but people, bringing everyone in our communities together. We work to be the voice for all non-motorized trail users, defending and promoting trails as pillars of Pure Michigan. And we recognize that trails provide pathways to a healthier and more prosperous state.

Thanks in large part to your continued and generous support, we have established Michigan as the #1 trails state in the nation. Much has been accomplished, but much more needs to follow, and we need your help to get there. Take a moment to read along to see what we have accomplished this year and where we are headed. It is an exciting time and we couldn’t do what we do without your generous support.

Your continued financial support is crucial to our efforts. You can donate online, by smart phone or landline, or send a check. We thank you and look forward to the coming year as we continue our work to make trails happen across Michigan.

On behalf of our board and staff, we thank you.

Diane Bancroft
