The Poto Chapter is reigniting our Adopt-a-Trail Segment Program at the Poto for 2011.
What is the Program?
You adopt a section of the Poto correspondent to a color-coded map and agree to perform routine maintenance on that section for 2011.
A copy of the map (Adobe .pdf file) can be found at:
Poto Adopt-a-Trail-Segment Color Coded Map
We currently HAVE adopters for the Pink, Purple, Red, Brown and Green sections. WE NEED ADOPTERS FOR ALL OTHER COLORS ON THE MAP.
What are Adopter Responsibilities?
The following document (Word .doc file) details responsibilities of each adopter in depth:
2011 Poto Trail Adoption Guidelines
Send me a PM if you are interested in adopting a section (color) or have additional questions. Note: You will need to share your contact info (email/phone) with myself, the MDNR Unit Manager and the other section adopters if you become an adopter. This is simply so we can all communicate on maintenance and upkeep issues. If you do not wish to share this info, please don't adopt. Your contact info will not be shared with any others without your consent.
With all the rains we've had, the Poto is starting to get hairy and scary. If you are a Poto regular, I'd encourage you to consider adopting a section. Keeping up the Poto is a monumental task and requires a massive group effort. Be a part of the effort! This is an easy way for you to take charge and do your share on your own time and at your own pace!
Thanks for considering adoption!
