The Oakhurst River Parkway Trail Restoration Project

Start Date: 05/02/2024

Finish Date: 05/02/2025


Partner: American Water Charitable Foundation


Funder: American Water Charitable Foundation


Purpose: The Oakhurst River Parkway Trail Restoration Project will allocate grant funds to initiate a comprehensive Project Environmental Assessment. This involves conducting thorough pre- and post-restoration surveys of the area's flora and fauna, aimed at quantifying biodiversity gains and monitoring the vitality and prevalence of native species. Following the assessment, the project will move to the implementation phase, focusing on eradicating invasive species, repairing and reinforcing trail infrastructure, and enhancing water flow to reduce flooding risks significantly. An integral part of this phase includes mobilizing community involvement through volunteer workdays, offering a hands-on approach to conservation efforts, and fostering a sense of ownership and responsibility towards the parkway.
