John Kucko Digital Trail of Hope

The Native Way
The Trail of Hope is truly a trail of inspiration for everyone with flower and vegetable gardens everywhere.  With over 15,000 flowers blooming in the peak of summer it is a haven for butterflies, bees, and birds.  The Trail of Hope is totally an accessible trail and part of the Wegmans passport program.  The Trail of Hope is dedicated to Jim Tuscher, Lyons Class of 1957 who had spent his life as an advocate for people with disabilities and to Leigh Ann Henry, Lyons Class of 2006 who, due to an injury sustained in an auto accident and now uses a wheelchair. The Trail of Hope would like to thank the generous support of Lyons and the surrounding communities with their donations of materials and labor. The Trail of Hope is totally run by volunteers and donations that it receives. If you are interested in making a donation, please make your checks out to Trailworks, Inc.  C/O of the Trail of Hope.

The Trail of Hope is grateful for the support from the Week of Hope during the early summer each year.  Their contributions can be found throughout the trail.
