The Greenbelt Alliance of Denton County is a community-based, volunteer organization that fosters awareness of the Greenbelt; generates public support; promotes recreational and educational opportunities; and encourages preservation of the Greenbelt in its present, scenic, natural state for the benefit of all.
About Greenbelt Alliance
The Greenbelt Alliance, a non-profit organization created in 2009, currently has more than 600 members and has undertaken many volunteer projects, though much remains to be done. Like so many non-profit organizations, we depend on the support of sponsors, donors, and community partners so that we may continue to improve the Greenbelt Trail and its accompanying facilities. The Greenbelt Alliance is a 501 (c) 3 organization, and donations are tax-deductible.
To increase awareness of the Greenbelt Trail, the regional recreation resource that the Greenbelt provides to the public, and to raise funds to support the Greenbelt and the mission of the Greenbelt Alliance, the idea for GreenFest was proposed. The GreenFest on the Greenbelt is a fundraising activity to support the mission and goals of The Greenbelt Alliance.
