Four years ago, the Freshwater Land Trust partnered with FOX 6 for a monthly segment on Good Day Alabama with Jeh Jeh Pruitt to broadcast from area parks and trails to talk about the health, economic, environmental, and general community benefits of green space in Jefferson County. This monthly television segment gives us the opportunity to educate local communities on the Red Rock Ridge & Valley Trail System and how they can connect to the places that want to go.
The 2015 version of Red Rock Tuesday kicks off next Tuesday, March 3rd at the Shades Valley YMCA. We’re excited to spend another year with Jeh Jeh and his team traveling throughout Jefferson County to spread the word about the Red Rock. This year we’ll feature special giveaways and exciting announcements about new trails being built, so stay tuned every first Tuesday of the month!
The YMCA of Greater Birmingham is one of the most visible organizations promoting local health, and they have plans to further expand their impact by reaching outside of a facility’s four walls and into area neighborhoods. Next week we’ll hear from the Y’s President/CEO Stan Law about current programs that are positively impacting families, and also get a glimpse into what the Y has planned to make our entire community healthier.
We hope you will tune in, or better yet, come to the Y or any of our 2015 Red Rock Tuesday locations! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay updated on where we’ll be the next month and how you can get involved with the Red Rock Ridge & Valley Trail System.
