What's New:

  • January 2015: Our Senior Trailmaster, Frank Eggert, has passed away at the age of 89. He was a founding member of the WEC in 1975, and of its predecessor organization in 1965. He was a tireless advocate for expansion of our trail system, remaining active in constructing and maintaining it until just a month before his death. Many of the signs on the trails today were built personally by him. You can see a photographic tribute to some of his more recent work here .
  • January 2015: Welcome to Maria Ceravolo and Julie Ream as the newest members of the WEC.  Also, we extend a thank-you to Bill Klaus and Chris Newman for their years of service as members.
  • June 2014: Congratulations to Julianna Farina and Thomas Sparks, winners of the WEC 6th Grade Student Environmental Awards for 2014.  Each has received $75 in recognition of their interest in and volunteer efforts toward the local environment.
