Rivanna Trails

Enjoying the Outdoors with Children

The Rivanna Trail is a valuable community resource, providing a safe and fun place for spending time outside with children.

At the annual Teddy Bear Hike three dozen adorable, warmly dressed kids along with furry animals and adult caretakers explored the Rivanna Trail in Riverview Park. They fueled up on “people food,” sprinkled “animal food” for birds, and warmed up with hot chocolate provided by our friends at Blue Ridge Mountain Sports.

During a recent 8-week long Forest Discoveries program at the Boys & Girls Club located at Southwood, children aged 6 to 10 improved access to their forest by building a new hiking trail.

The amazing APO fraternity from UVa then ignored sleet, rain, and mud to finish up the heavy work.  See our photo album for some pictures of the day.

Do you have a group of kids who want to help out on the trail? Do you want to make a gift that supplies kid-sized tools or user-friendly signage? Send us an email.
