It’s been a successful year of progress in advancing the vision for the Bourne Rail Trail. The first piece of funding for Phase 1 of the BRT was secured in October 2018, the Friends hosted our first ever TrailFest event in August, and the “Bourne Rail Trail Blazers” (30 riders strong!) broke records in raising more than $22,000 for the Buzzards Bay Coalition’s work to protect water quality along Bourne’s coastline and throughout Buzzards Bay.

These successes would not be possible without you, our supporters near and far, who continue to support the development of the BRT. As we look to grow and expand our efforts in 2019, please consider a donation to the Friends this giving season. Your gift will help the advancement of Phase 1 the BRT and sustain the Friends efforts to continue to raise awareness and support for the project.

This year, we are pleased to announce several ways to give to the Friends!
