We were saddened to learn today of the recent passing of Mr. Don Wydeen, formerly of Dalton. I got to experience his generosity and community mindedness firsthand when back in 2013, the plans for the Trolley Trail came to a screeching halt before we could connect into Dalton. We were ONE property short from bringing the Trolley Trail all the way from Clarks Summit into Dalton when Don and his wife Tina came to the rescue. They graciously allowed the Conservancy to have an easement along the edge of their property in order to get trail users out to South Turnpike Road and continue on to Dalton. This alternate route would require a 240-ft. raised boardwalk through wetlands and Don didn't bat an eye. He saw the potential benefit of the Trolley Trail to the community, and he understood the importance of completing the connection into Dalton. Don put the community before himself and took the chance on an unknown brand new trail. The resulting boardwalk has become one of the most popular features along the Trolley Trail and lets trail users experience the unique wetland ecosystem from above. We don't take landowner generosity lightly especially when it comes to allowing public access, but Don's belief in the Trail and the Conservancy will have a lasting impact on the community for generations of residents. From all of us here at the Conservancy, our condolences to his family and please think about him the next time you walk or ride the boardwalk.
