Three More Community Groups Joining River Trail Mantenance Effort
Posted on: 12/03/2012

Marietta City Councilmember Roger Kalter tells WMOA News that three more community groups have agreed to become Friends of the River Trail to assist the city with maintenance and cleaning the 2.2- mile trail used by an average of more than 14,000 people per month.
Friends of the River Trail was initiated by members of the Marietta Rowing and Cycling Club, who both regularly use and help maintain the trail, which stretches from Indian Acres Park Boat Ramp to the foot of Fourth Street.   
The newest groups pitching in to help maintain the trail, Kalter says, are the County Juvenile Center, First Unitarian Universalist Church and the Marietta Boat Club. They join five other groups in helping the city by cleaning trash, debris and vegetation from the 10-foot-wide path, and reporting more serious  problems to the city. 
Kalter says two areas still available for adoption: from the bicentennial fountain area to Post Street, and from East Muskingum Park to the Washington Street Bridge.  
Anyone interested in becoming a Friend of the Trail should contact Roger Kalter at 740-373-1784 or
