The goal of the Whitewater Canal Trail, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit corporation, is to foster activities along the Whitewater Canal corridor that focus on historical preservation and interpretation, outdoor recreation and natural resource conservation while promoting sustainable development and improved quality of life in connected communities.
May is "National Take A Walk Month" and everyone will have an opportunity to exercise their bodies while also exercising their art appreciation with "Art and Sole" along the Yellowbank Trail from May 1-31. The project is sponsored by the Franklin Co. Arts Council and the Whitewater Canal Trail.
See works of art by Norman Rockwell, Mary Cassatt, N. C. Wyeth, Jacob Lawrence, and others. A scavenger hunt will also be available. For more info, contact Patti Wilhelm at 765-309-1473 or Tom Cooney at 765-580-0111.
