A $250,000 National Recreational Trails Grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife was secured by the trust to purchase approximately 37 acres in Tyler County containing the Dogwood Trail. The grant is an 80% reimbursable grant with the BTNHT providing a 20% match. The trust is currently raising funds for this match.
Working with Texas Nature Conservancy staff, we have secured an agreement with Hancock Forest Management to purchase the property.
Following acquisition, the property will be conveyed to the Texas A&M Forest Service who has committed to take title to the property, to repair and maintain the trail, and to keep the trail open for the benefit of the public.
