Twenty two volunteers participated in the training and also worked on decommissioning old routes that aren’t part of the long-term recreation management plan.

At the last focus group meeting April 28, the group offered a lot of great feedback and ideas that will improve the final trail designs. Discussion centered on some details for motorized trails and general concepts for non-motorized trails.
The next work party is on Sunday, May 16. The day’s work will include planning for the motorized trail system. If you are interested in laying out where trails could go in the future, please join DNR staff. Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the gravel parking area off Reiter Rd.
Directions to the Reiter gravel parking area: Travel U.S. Hwy 2 to the southeast outskirts of Gold Bar. Turn north on Reiter Road, and in less than a mile you will come to a split in the road. Continue to your right on Reiter Road to the old gravel pit/parking area.

Help Support DNR Grant Funding Requests
The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is applying for four grants: three from the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP) and one from the Recreation Trails Program (RTP). The WWRP grants provide funding for non-motorized recreation and restoration in the Reiter Foothills. The RTP grant is for funding for off-road vehicle education. These grants are just the first round of the grants DNR will apply for to get funding for recreation at Reiter. The four grants include:
• Reiter Foothills Trail System Acquisition (Grant # 10-1069)
• Reiter Foothills Trail System Development Phase 1 (Grant # 10-1070)
• Reiter Foothills Restoration (Grant # 10-1071)
• Reiter Off Road Vehicle Education (Grant # 10-1621)
If you are interested in helping DNR obtain grant funding for Reiter, please send a letter explaining your support and include the specific grant(s) by grant number(s). Your letters of support will go a long way in helping DNR obtain grant funding. We appreciate your support.
Send letters by July 16 to David Way at 919 North Township St., Sedro Woolley, WA 98284-9384 or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
