#GivingTuesday is a monumental day of opportunity for nonprofit organizations all around the world. It is a global movement that unleashes the power of dedicated people and organizations to transform their communities. This movement includes us - the Friends of the Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail - and every person who has treasured this slice of paradise in King George County, VA. As a group of passionate volunteers who are an active voice for the trail, we ask you to join forces with us to ensure that #GivingTuesday and the entire #GivingSeason make a lasting, positive impact on this place we cherish.
Funds raised during #GivingTuesday and #GivingSeason will be directly used to improve access and user experiences on the trail. We are planning an expansion of parking and trail access areas, improvement of fire pits and camping spaces, consistent trail maintenance, and the sharing of relevant news and trail updates within the trail's information kiosks.
If you share our passion for the trail, please donate on December 1st and share our fundraiser with your friends and family using Facebook and Instagram. "Like" our page and follow along as we pursue our goal of raising $5,000!

It's been a busy month on the trail. We had rain interspersed with some nice days. Our friend and expert photographer Chris McClintock is out there almost every morning taking fabulous photos, which she posts on her Facebook page. Check them out — especially if you aren't lucky enough to be able to visit the DRHT daily.
This fellow — or gal, we don't know gender — is making its home on the DRHT near the caboose.
Since it has adopted the trail, we figure we should adopt it in return.
Help us name our resident groundhog. Send us your suggestions and we'll share the favorites for a vote.
Thanks to Warren Veazey for the portrait of the groundhog in its home environment.
