Adopt-a-Path is growing to meet the demands of an expanding trail network in the Quad Cities. This past year, two miles of the Mississippi River Trail was completed through downtown Bettendorf to Riverdale and in Davenport a new bridge was constructed, connecting Credit Island to South Concord Street.

River Action’s Adopt-a-Path program is working to keep the Quad Cities’ recreational trails clean. The volunteer program is an informal agreement whereby citizens, organizations, local businesses and student groups help by picking up trails throughout the year. Volunteers or “Trail keepers” adopt ½-mile sections of the Mississippi River Trail (IA and IL) and Duck Creek Recreational Trail. (IA)
