Your Money

Money goes a long way in helping support all aspects of our mission.

Our small but energetic, all-volunteer group brought the Redbud Trail to life. Working with the city of Andover, AARTI was instrumental in helping to secure $1.7 million in alternative transportation grant funding, turning the old BNSF rail line into a  vibrant and valuable community asset.

AARTI contributes countless hours of labor and in-kind donations of equipment that originally cleared the trail and, today, helps maintain it. Your tax-deductible donations help purchase trail maintenance equipment, crushed limestone, repairs vandalism, rents dump trailers for hauling, and pays to sharpen chainsaws.

From Dream to Dream Come True

“The outdoors is a big part of my quality of life. As a decades-long runner and cyclist, The Redbud Trail is a readily accessible, safe way to get out for fun and fitness. Because I use it often, it made sense to take an active role in helping to grow and maintain the trail. Come join us!”
