The Trinity Trust River Rats Host Trails of the Trinity

On June 16, more than 100 guests of the Trails of the Trinity event, sponsored by Colliers International, enjoyed nibbles from On the Border and margaritas poolside at the Plaza II at Turtle Creek. While classical guitarist Daniel Rodriguez played, attendees learned more information about the many trails of The Trinity project, with a focus on the White Rock Lake spine trail. Named the spine trail, this 12-mile planned trail will connect White Rock Lake down south to the Trinity River Audubon Center through the Great Trinity Forest, which consists of 6,000 acres of hardwood forests.

This event was hosted by The Trinity River Rats, a membership group of The Trinity Trust, comprised of young enthusiasts dedicated to supporting The Trinity project. With a focus on education and increasing public awareness about the project, their goal is to build support of The Trinity project among Dallas' young leaders in an effort to enhance life for the Dallas community through environmental, recreational and economical efforts. Membership benefits include access to The Trinity Trust lecture series, which features prominent speakers. Members are also invited to exclusive events, canoe trips down the Trinity River and hikes through the Great Trinity Forest. Memberships are $100 per individual or couple. To join, visit or call Tierney Kaufman at 214-740.1616.

The Trinity Trust raises funds and public awareness to implement the Balanced Vision Plan for The Trinity project in conjunction with the City of Dallas. The Trinity Trust has established The Trinity Center as the gathering place for all civic and non-profit groups working to revitalize the Trinity River in Dallas. It houses the offices of the Trinity Trust Foundation, Texas Horse Park, Groundwork Dallas and Trinity Strand Trail, and hosts meetings, workshops and events for these organizations and the Trinity Commons Foundation. The Trinity Center facilitates collaboration between these entities and the City of Dallas and encourages seamless integration of all the components of The Trinity project.
