RESTORING LAKE NATOMA WATERFRONT TRAIL
By Jennie Lewis, Grants Committee Chair
The Folsom Garden Club (FGC) awarded $7,623 in Grants in November 2017 (last budget year). The Grants Committee has now received final reports on the grant funded projects.
The Friends of Folsom Parkways was one of those grant funded projects. This new nonprofit organization was awarded $595 to help restore the Lake Natoma Waterfront Trail with trees native to the area.
Six Oak trees were purchased with the funding and planted by the Boy Scouts of America along the bike trail. Irrigation was also purchased and installed to support the new tree plantings.
Once mature, the new Oak trees will ultimately provide shade for the ADA approved ramp located near the newly planted trees. The ramp allows access to the trail for persons with disabilities. The City of Folsom will provide weed abatement for the new plantings.
Carol Ramstad , Board Member, Friends of Folsom Parkways stated, “Thank You FGC, we really appreciate the help! The trees along our trail look great.”
