Rails to Trails Consrvency

Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.

Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries is a spin-off of the popular Australian series called Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. The original Mrs. Fisher’s Murder Mysteries are gentle mysteries, similar to Murder She Wrote.  In this new spin-off, Mrs. Fisher’s long-lost niece decides to follow in her footsteps as a lady detective in the 1960s.  The series is four episodes on Acorn.

 

Rail-trails are public paths created from unused railroad corridors. They are flat or gently sloping which makes them easily accessible by bikers, walkers, cross-country skiers and horseback riders – whatever the local community allows.  The group whose goal is to have trails cross the entire U.S.A from coast to coast began their efforts thirty years ago.  Rails to Trails Conservancy  is the nonprofit working to connect 12 states and the District of Columbia with rail-trails, serving 50 million people within 50 miles of the route.
