    Cyclists ride from Maine to Florida

    On September 20, the ENHC and the Coastal Trails Coalition organized an overnight stay in Newburyport for a group of nine cyclists participating in the first ECG Maine to Florida Tour. The following day, the riders passed through the ENHA on-route to Key West, where they arrived intact on November 3. The group, whose members were all over the age of 50, was the first to ride the entire length of the East Coast Greenway, a 2,800-mile urban equivalent to the Appalachian Trail.

    Partnership Grants Update

    Guidelines for the 2005 ENHA Partnership Grants will be available in January on www.essexheritage.org. Funds will be made available for education, interpretation and preservation projects, as well as for archives/historical records and trails and greenways projects.

    While we prepare for the next grant cycle, we congratulate grant recipients who have recently completed projects. The Essex County Greenbelt Association produced three "Get Outside" cable TV programs designed to familiarize residents with the great outdoors of the Area. Staff from Historic New England's Little Farm in Newbury and the Haverhill Historical Society worked together to provide a five- part workshop on the basics of collections care. Twenty-seven staff and volunteers from sites aound the region participated.

    Purchase an ENHA jacket, hat or tote and support our mission!

    With a small gift to the ENHC, you will receive one of these attractive, useful items while also supporting the historic, cultural and natural resources in the Area. Explorers receive the same items with a 10% lower donation.
