On April 12, 2016, Forest Service personnel and volunteers met at the Bowerman Barn to discuss the interpretive trail. The group walked along the proposed trail to define the path and the location of interpretive markers. The County Resource Conservation District, which will help build the trail, was represented by Shiloe Braxton, District Manager. Forest Service personnel attending were Vinci Keeler, Phyllis Swanson, Peter Schmidt, Cynthia Luzietti, and Charles Clark. Volunteers included Carol Fall, Pam Augspurger, Erik Anderson, and Mariko Tanaka.
The Trinity Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) met on April 4, 2016 and approved funding of $8,000 for the “Bowerman Homestead Trail and Web Map” proposal. The funding will be used for two components. The first component is to construct the interpretive trail through the Bowerman Homestead site connecting historic features. The second component involves creating accurate, user friendly information available via an updated interactive website and smart phone application. The RAC funding is from the Secure Rural Schools Authorization Extension, Public Law 110-343.
