Adopt a Trail

Do you have favorite trails at KNC? Trails that you enjoy visiting in all seasons, or that have special meaning to you?

The Kalamazoo Nature Cente’rs Adopt-A-Trail Program provides a way for individuals and businesses to sponsor maintenance on specific trails. Your philanthropic contribution to the maintenance and upkeep of KNC Trails helps provide much needed trail maintenance that currently has no Federal funding. It is a great way to demonstrate that you care for trails that current and future generations will enjoy

Your trail adoption is good for one year from month of purchase.
