Donation to parks


The June 10, 2017, World Of Wildlife Bicycle Tour had 415 registrants, the third-highest number during its 13 years, and enabled its sponsors to donate $9,500 to Trumbull County MetroParks.

The donation will be used to help with the cost of constructing the final Trumbull County phase of the Western Reserve Greenway hike and bike trail. The phase is between Warren and Niles.

WOW 2017 sponsors were Trumbull County MetroParks, Trumbull County Combined Health District, Kent State University Trumbull and Western Reserve Land Conservancy.

Since the first WOW Ride in 2005, more than $87,000 has been raised to benefit the hike and bike trail.
