Help Plant a Garden on the MBT

Please see the note below about the garden planting in November!

Hello Met Branch Trail supporters,
Many of you know Paul Meijer, a long-time D.C. resident and tireless supporter of the Met Branch Trail. As a leader of the MBT Coalition, Paul advocated for a complete, safe, well-connected Met Branch Trail for decades, often keeping the idea of the MBT alive when the city had all but forgotten it. In 2010, when the newest section of the MBT opened in the Edgewood and Eckington neighborhoods, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy recognized Paul’s contributions with a small grant to create a tulip garden along the trail (a nod to Paul’s Dutch heritage). With the near completion of the new pedestrian bridge, we’re ready to plant Paul’s garden but we need your help!

See you on the trail,
