Plank Donation

Friends Boardwalk Plank Fundraiser to Replace/Rebuild the Hellcat Trail - Donate an Engraved Boardwalk Plank!

Replace wooden planks with new synthetic planks (made with recycled materials). Installations start at Lot #1, the most visited access point on the refuge.

Engraved planks demonstrate each donor's support for the refuge and the Hellcat Trail, while improving access, helping to protect the refuge, and raising funds for the Hellcat Trail project.

Our goal: $100,000 for Hellcat Trail in 2019

Engraved Plank (individual) - $100   Thank you donors! 

Engraved Plank & Corporate Membership - $350  

For Boardwalk Plank Orders - include the name to be engraved with your check, or in the notes section of the online order entry screen.  Also note if the order is a memorial or a gift.

All planks will be installed on Parker River NWR boardwalks,
starting with Lot #1. Installations will occur when staffing and weather allow.
Contact friends@parkerriver.org for further information.
