How can I contribute?
The next crucial aspect is gap funding for what the grants detailed below
do not cover! Please send your donation to:
Friends of the Struble Trail
P.O. Box 54
Lyndell, PA 19354
If you itemize and would like your contribution to be tax-deductible, please MAKE YOUR CHECK OUT TO NATURAL LANDS TRUST,
and send it to the Friends of the Struble Trail above. We will package
all the checks together and give them to NLT in one bundle, who will in
turn deposit them into the Struble Trail Project.
money that we get in excess of what we need will go to a project where
it will directly benefit the Struble Trail. Hopefully Friends will be
able to provide better (although still subtle) signage to help
determine exactly where emergency access will reach victims on the
trail fastest, and more benches for all the people who use the trail in
recovery from illness. Thank You!!!

regarding the property open to the public. (No back room deals!)
efforts elevated the Shryock property to a campaign issue for the
candidates for Chester County Commissioner, all four of whom put out
press releases supporting public ownership of the Shryock Property.
