Shawano Pathways (SPOKES) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 incorporated in August 2011 and funded by annual membership dues, grants, and donations. The organization formed in response to a growing need for trails and greenspaces in Shawano County, Wisconsin. Our mission is to plan for and facilitate in the development, implementation and maintenance of a greenway and trails network within Shawano County and adjacent areas for recreation and alternative transportation, while preserving and restoring natural areas and resources connected with the trails.
The goal of establishing a network of pedestrian and bicycle trails connecting communities throughout Wisconsin is shared by many organizations. Our goal is to link the places people live, work, and play in Shawano County by supporting like-minded organizations and businesses, and promoting dialogue between the various local governments.
Membership is open to the public and your dues help support the many programs, trails, and projects we strive to promote, develop, and preserve.
