NORWICH — The Chenango Greenway Conservancy held their annual member meeting a few weeks ago to reflect on past accomplishments, financial budgeting, future promises, and to honor 2023 volunteers Scott Sutton and Judy Kilean.

According to the Conservancy Chairperson Sharon Pelosi, Sutton and Kilean tirelessly gave effort and passion into everything they worked on and have left an undeniably large footprint of community and conservation support for anyone to add to and build on in the future.

Pelosi gave a warm thank you to all of the members, volunteers, and supporters.

“We look forward to working with our stakeholders and the community as we move forward to implement improvements,” she added.

She also gave a special thank you to all trail keepers, operations team, event planners, and public relations team members for their dedication and hard work.

Recently, Pelosi said the Conservancy is grateful for the support received from community leaders and NYS for understanding and recognizing the potential the projects offer to the community and economy, which has helped transform the area into a great recreational destination.

The Chenango Greenway Conservancy has numerous projects in store, which will continue to engage and excite hikers during the day and night.

Kicking off the year is the return of the Fatnango Bike Race and following up through the year, the ever popular Race to the Face 5k and Mountain Goat Challenge, and Rock the Quarry, and Tales and Trails.

Keeper site restorations along the quarry trail will allow future story telling along the trail, adventurous Full Moon hikes will light up the night, and more wellness hikes and family hikes are on the agenda for 2024.

The Chenango Greenway Conservancy stands strong through all of the members and volunteers and is excited about 2024 bringing more trails, adventures and awesome outdoor moments.

The Chenango Greenway Conservancy is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) public charity organized in 2006 to develop a network of multiple use recreation trails in and around the City of Norwich.
