This partnership between New River Trail and the Town of Fries has been going strong for the last three years. The Alternative Spring Break groups travel to Fries, VA to work on projects throughout the town. Thankfully, the town is willing to share this group with the park to accomplish projects on the trail as well.
Jimmy Elliott, Assistant Park Manager, stated “We greatly appreciate the Town of Fries willingness to share the students with the park.”
