The Army Corps of Engineers will be able to keep their facilities open during the government shutdown (at least for the near term). Therefore, Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day will be unaffected. In fact, FATS is closed during the shutdown, so grab your kid and spend some quality time with them on Bartram Trail.
Do you enjoy our trails?
If so, can you volunteer 5 hours for trail work in 2015 or, if you're too busy, donate $50 to SORBAcsra?
