Stuart & Emma Thomas Memorial Trail Supporters

Stuart & Emma Thomas Memorial Trail

After the campaign to protect one of Winston-Salem’s most beloved landscapes, Andrea Thomas, along with many generous supporters, stepped in to fund the building of this public trail in memory of father and daughter, Stuart & Emma Thomas. The trail will always welcome people to travel its path and find moments of peace, strength, and joy thanks to the community who came together to make it happen.

“When you lose people you love so much, there is a great desire to make sure they’re remembered, and I knew this would be so meaningful to them. They both were great lovers of the outdoors.”
– Andrea Thomas
