Anne U. White Trailhead Restoration
Your donation, small or large, will pay for the revival of the Anne U. White trail restoring almost 5,000 feet of stream corridor and seeding 10 acres.
In September of 2013, the Anne U. White Trail trail located in north Boulder was completely destroyed by flood waters. Reconstruction of the Anne U. White Trail is underway, involving volunteers and Boulder County Parks and Open Space staff. You can help too!
We received an initial donation of $3,500 to be used toward the final plant restoration work which is not covered by FEMA or other funding sources. We hope to at least match this amount, and hopefully exceed the total costs of this effort to restore this treasured resource to its former splendor.
- Wetland Transplants: $5,945
- Seed: $1,500
- Plants: $11,890
- Total: $19,335
The White Family
Anne U. White was one of the early proponents to preserve open space in Boulder County and one of the initial members of the Boulder County Parks and Open Space Advisory Committee.
Gilbert Fowler White, Anne's husband, was a prominent American geographer, sometimes termed the "father of floodplain management" and the "leading environmental geographer of the 20th century." Learn more about Gilbert on Wikipedia or by watching a 16-minute biography.
Mary White is one of Anne and Gilbert's three children. In 2010, Mary worked with a committee of local engineers, government officials, and artists to honor Gilbert's work with a beautiful flood marker that sits beside Boulder Creek, just east of Broadway. The marker has indicators for the 50, 100 and 500 year flood levels. Learn more about the Boulder Creek Flood Level Marker Project.
Win A Pair Of Walking Sticks
Mary White graciously donated a pair of walking sticks to the Foundation. The walking sticks belonged to her parents and the darker stick is made of manzanita wood.
Anyone who contributes to the Anne U. White restoration fund raiser will be entered into a drawing to win the walking sticks.
