BVUSD Education Foundation: School Trails
PROJECT DOCUMENT 3rd Revision: March 2020
In 2018, RCK Properties donated 213 acres of forested land to the Bear Valley Unified School District. The District has transferred title to the BVUSD Education Foundation.
After discussions with stakeholders, it has been proposed to utilize much of the land for a network of community trails. These trails will provide opportunities for high school cross country runners and bike team members to train, as well as outdoor, place-based science learning and experiential education prospects for both elementary and high school students. Additionally, the trails will provide necessary connectivity between local neighborhoods and schools, providing alternatives to traveling along busy city streets. Finally, the trails will afford to the community easy and convenient access to outdoor recreational opportunities close to where they live.
