Who We Are....
A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Sunflower
Rail-Trails Conservancy, Inc. is a group of volunteers working to
help other organizations develop trails in the state of
Kansas. Our members live in various parts of the state,
and have personal involvement with active trail groups.
We monitor the availability of railroad abandonments,
work to get them rail-banked, and work to find interested
local people to begin development. Trails are places
where families can enjoy the beautiful outdoors
together. They are places where individuals may safely
and healthily exercise. Trails, rail-trails
particularly, also provide in modern times the original,
essential purpose: to link communities together. We
believe that an essential element of the health of
present and future Kansas generations relies upon
opportunities and encouragement towards an active
lifestyle; and that an active lifestyle depends upon
places where activity can occur.
