The donation comes from the Vitalogy Foundation, which supports the efforts of nonprofit organizations doing commendable work in the fields of community health, the environment, arts and education and social change.

The Ferry County Rail Trail is a 25-mile multi-use, nonmotorized route along an abandoned railway that connects four towns, two school complexes and has miles of waterfront on Curlew Lake and the Kettle River.

“I’m totally amazed,” said Bob Whittaker, president of FCRTP. “I had heard it announced on the news that Pearl Jam are inductees to the Rock n Roll hall of fame, then a few hours later I got a text from Vedder with the news. What a lovely guy, band and a wonderful organization.” More here. Rich Landers/SR
