Sunflower’s goal is to establish an interconnected rail-trail system in the Sunflower State. Toward this end, Sunflower railbanks/conserves out-of-service rail lines and then finds local volunteer project coordinators to recruit volunteers to build the trails. To date we have had two successes: the 6.5-mile Southwind Rail Rail between Iola and Humboldt and the 2.2-mile Lehigh Portland Rail Trail in south Iola. We have a total of seven trails totaling 163 miles. We also find railbanking opportunities and encourage local groups to railbank and develop these trails. In addition, the Conservancy serves as an information clearinghouse to provide general and technical information to trails activists. So, come participate in a fun and exciting venture which will create something tangible on a large scale. Invest a modest amount now which will yield benefits to you and others many-fold in the future. Gain satisfaction in enabling children to explore the outdoors for fun whereby they gain a lifelong interest in nature and exercise. You can make a difference today!
