I would like to ask my readers for help:
The Arizona Trail has again been selected to compete for the $50,000
Redwood Creek Greater Outdoors Project grant. Arizona Trail supporters
tried very hard last year but our project came in second. If the ATA
wins, the funds would help build an 11-mile reroute in the Sonoran
Desert “Black Hills” passage north of Oracle, plus help with needed
trailheads and kiosks in Pima and Pinal Counties. This new singletrack

HOW TO VOTE:
Between 12 AM ET April 1, 2010 and midnight ET on August 31, 2010, you can vote for the Arizona Trail project once each day!
Vote online at www.blazethetrail.com/greatoutdoors/vote/
For all the details on how you can help, go to the Redwood Creek grant page.
The Arizona Trail has been in the lead up until this week, and is
only in second by a small margin. With your help, the ATA can be back
on top! Please vote, and help spread the word by asking your friends to
