Press Release for Heybrook Hoedown 2019

The Friends of Heybrook Ridge host their 13th annual Heybrook Hoedown fundraiser on October 19, 2019 from 5PM to 10PM at the new Startup Event Center (14315 366th Ave SE in Startup, WA).  Our funding focus is the completion of Heybrook Ridge County Park’s “Erinswood Trail”, an ADA (wheelchair accessible) 1/2-mile loop at the base of the Ridge. The Event Center venue provides plenty of space for dinner, live and silent auctions, relaxing, and dancing to the lively music of Spare Rib and the Bluegrass Sauce.

The Friends of Heybrook Ridge (FOHR) was formed in 2007 as a non-profit organization whose mission was to save the Ridge from clearcutting, and to join Snohomish County Parks and Recreation in creating its newest county park.  For the next decade, generous donors large and small, fundraising events, environmental and trail building organizations’ work, and conservation and recreation grants all led to the official opening of Heybrook Ridge County Park in 2017.   The Park now boasts 2 trails: the beautiful 1-2/3 mile long “Leovy Trail” that winds up the forested Ridge to a stunning summit view of Bridle Veil Falls, and the halfway-completed  “Erinswood” that starts at the parking lot and wanders through lush lowland woods.

FOHR is an all-volunteer group committed to spending raised funds wisely on trail building, education programs, and stewardship of the Park.  Come join us on October 19th in some fantastic fun for a great cause.
