No act of congress or state agency was mandated to coordinate or complete the Ozark Trail. Instead, it was a cooperative effort of seven governmental agencies, one private landowner and several environmental groups, banded together. These groups, people of all walks of life working together to build something amazingly beautiful for others to enjoy. That in itself is amazing! We can’t even explain how beautiful the trail is. You have to experience it yourself and take it all in. The problem is a large percentage of the general public isn’t even aware the OT exists. With a fundraiser like this we as members of the OTA are able to help build something great for people to enjoy for many years to come. Please help us finish the OT by donating what you can. At the very least try to get out there on the trail and see what we are talking about. You will not be disappointed.
