Join the ACORNS for a 5K walk/run and 10K trail race in the Genesee County Park & Forest on Sunday, October 13, 2013!
Walk or run on single and double track trails through the forest, along a creek and up and down moderately rolling hills in the Genesee County Park & Forest. Trails are very wide and easy to negotiate (minimal rocks and roots). The course starts on asphalt and then quickly leads into the woods for a truly beautiful run through nature. We will highlight the wonderful attributes of the park as the runners make their way along the beautiful trails.
All proceeds benefit ACORNS, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) "friends of the park" group that enhances the public's experience at the Genesee County parks and fosters environmental stewardship and education.
Since 2006 ACORNS has provided financial and volunteer support for projects and programs that enhance and supplement the recreational, environmental and educational activities at the Genesee County parks. Our activities include staffing the Nature Interpretive Center, assisting at environmental education programs, funding displays at the Nature Interpretive Center, assisting with biological surveys and participating in trail and facilities maintenance. Future plans include demonstration gardens with a sensory garden for persons with challenges to enjoy the wonders of nature.
