Trail Signs

 

You might have seen this sign on the trail posts along your walk.  

Delays in the production and installation of the new trail markers in the East Duffins Headwaters trail system were at a standstill until funds were allocated to this project.

 

In 2016, Green Durham Association agreed to finance this initiative and the new maps and numbering signs on the trail markers were installed in the fall of 2016.

To recover its costs, GDA has launched an initiative where individuals who make a donation of $250 or more to GDA not only get a tax receipt but can also get a 5”x 5” sign that will be installed on one of the available trail marker posts.

The purpose of these personal messages is to pay tribute to someone, add an in memoriam to a loved one or offer an inspirational message to the outdoor enthusiasts who use the trails.

These are a sample of some of the messages that have been added to the posts:

You can donate either:

Send or email info@greendurham.ca with the proposed wording for the sign(s) and a GDA volunteer will then contact you to confirm your order, the location of the sign as well as coordinate when the sign will be installed.
