GREEN RIVER — Several volunteers from a local service group spent hours Saturday improving a trail at the FMC park and the Scotts Bottom area.

The volunteer group was local youth from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. About 80 volunteers showed up to help along with adult supervisors. Greenbelt Task Force members Tom Wilson and Bill Lewis were instrumental in the project.

The City of Green River provided the surfacing, crushed asphalt, for the trail and the Green River streets division delivered the material to the site. Wilson and Bernie Witte donated the equipment and their time to prep the surface.

The Greenbelt Task Force came up with the idea to improve the trail through extensive public input during the master planning process.  The improvements are just west of the FMC Archery Barn. 

Green River Mayor Pete Rust said it’s projects like these that make Green River a great place live and work. 

“The trail system in Green River is second to none and these types of projects just make an already great trail system better,” Mayor Rust said.
