About the Organization
The Friends of the Stower Seven Lakes Trail are a diverse group of over 200 energetic and engaged individuals, families and businesses committed to its vision, “the creation, promotion and preservation of the best-loved state trail in Wisconsin.” 

Members pay a nominal fee which supports the development, maintenance and promotion of the trail and receive semi-annual trail updates that include volunteer opportunities, upcoming events and highlights of trail users and their experiences. Board members are elected with Board meetings held every month.
