If they are important to you, please let Senator Boxer know today!


Californians: Please ACT NOW to Save Trails and Bike/Ped Facilities in the next Transportation Bill


The U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works that Senator Boxer leads is deciding what goes into the transportation bill now!  So we really need for her to know she has the backing of hundreds of organizations and thousands of constituents throughout California requesting she fight for trails and bicycling and walking programs.


These critical programs are at risk:


·           Recreational Trails Program (RTP)

·           Transportation Enhancements

·           Safe Routes to School


Here are several ways you can easily take action:


·           Have your California organization/agency/business sign on to a letter in support of dedicated funding for the Recreational Trails, Transportation Enhancements, and Safe Routes to School programs. Click here to view the letter and sign on to it.


·           Ask other organizations to sign on to the letter.


·          Invite Senator Boxer to a trail ground-breaking, to a volunteer work day, or to a National Trails Day celebration. Tell the Senator about your success stories and about the myriad of people of all ages and abilities that love and use these trails! Tell the media about these events, too.


·           Please take time today to call or email Senator Boxer. She can be reached at (202) 224-3553 or you can click here to email her. Please be sure and thank her for her past support of these critical funding programs!


·          Ask other friends of trails to contact the Senator.


·           Please share this message through your social networks!

Time is of the essence! The deadline for your California organization to sign on to the letter to Senator Boxer in support of dedicated funding for the Recreational Trails, Transportation Enhancements, and Safe Routes to School programs is Thursday, June 2, 2011.


Please pass this message on through your networks!


Thank you, in advance, for your support and swift action!
