National Trails Day is celebrated across the country to heighten awareness of how trails enhance a community’s overall health and quality of life. The Broomfield Trail Adventure is Broomfield’s local celebration of National Trails Day, and kicks off the Broomfield 100 challenge.
Through these events, trail users are encouraged to keep Broomfield’s trails, parks, and open space clean during their walks by picking up trash along the trails. Increased trail use this Spring has led to more trash and litter at some public spaces and trails. Combine a day of fun outdoor activity with community service on National Trails Day by picking up trash you may see on the way to help keep the trails and open lands clean and beautiful.
