Join the Friends

The Friends of Hank Aaron State Trail continues to be an advocate of the Trail, working closely with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, local communities, organizations, and businesses, to bring the Trail to reality. From our Spring River Clean-Up and Planting, to our 5k Run/Walk in August, to our hikes through history, the Friends helps people enjoy and appreciate all that the Hank Aaron State Trail has to offer.

Organized in 2001 to protect the development of the Trail, the non-profit Friends group is guided by our mission of enhancing the continued development of the Hank Aaron State Trail in cooperation with the DNR and other stakeholders and to foster stewardship of the Trail corridor by:

  • Renewing, protecting and enhancing the Hank Aaron State Trail corridor,
  • Providing opportunities for recreation and education,
  • Connecting neighbors and neighborhoods, and
  • Celebrating the history and natural environment of the Menomonee Valley.

Joining the Friends offers an opportunity to play an important role in bringing the Trail to its full potential. It provides a great forum for discussion and support of the Trail, and friends also receive newsletters and advance notification of special events. Plus, volunteer opportunities exist to fit most any schedule.
