WHAT: The Cawaco Resource, Conservation and Development Council will unveil its tool utility trailer for building and maintaining public trails

WHEN: Tuesday, May 17 at 10 a.m.

WHERE: Red Mountain Park, 277 Lyon Lane, Birmingham

SIGNIFICANCE: The trailer and tools will provide the equipment needed for volunteers to build or maintain public trails in Blount, Chilton, Jefferson, Shelby and Walker counties providing new recreational opportunities in Alabama at little or no cost to the taxpayers.

The equipment has already been used for debris removal at Ruffner Mountain Nature Center in Birmingham.

The trailer and tools were bought with a $10,000 grant obtained through the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs. Funding was provided from Federal Highway Administration’s Recreational Trails Program.
