FOPOS Trails Committee Receives Award

If you've noticed that many of Princeton's open space trails have markedly improved in recent years, you can largely thank the remarkable efforts of the Friends of Princeton Open Space trails committee. Many a muddy stretch has been made passable with stepping stones and boardwalks, and many a mile has been cleared of wayward growth and fallen trees.

Last Wednesday, at a ceremony hosted by the Princeton Public Library, the volunteer group received a Leadership Award from Sustainable Princeton for their work. Left to right are Tim Patrick-Miller, Eric Tazelaar, Andrew Thornton, Clark Lennon and fearless leader, Ted Thomas.

Eric described the many locations where weekend workdays have made a difference.

Among other award recipients was another trail-related group, the Princeton Joint Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee, led by Janet Heroux, partly in recognition of their "sharrows" initiative.
