FUNDRAISER:

We need your support to improve the Litton Trail!
 
The Litton Trail was the Land Trust’s first trail project. Decades later, this trail has proven to be an amazing community asset that serves all ages and abilities in the heart of a busy live, work and play center. Our vision is to provide accommodations and upgrades that meet the needs of the community well into the future.
 
Already, $21,000 has been raised towards this project, including $12,000 that was raised during the Fund-A-Need portion of our annual gala last year. An additional $9,000 is needed in order to meet the City of Grass Valley’s match for this project. Your donation to this wonderful community trail is fully deductible under the law. No goods or services were provided in exchange for your contribution. Bear Yuba Land Trust’s tax ID# is 68-0256981.
