Work is underway to improve and expand the Kewash Nature Trail, and who is responsible for its upkeep moving forward has been formalized. At the recent Washington City Council meeting an agreement with the Washington County Conservation Board was presented for consideration. Mayor Jaron Rosien commented on the 28E agreement, “This clears up our obligations moving forward on an excellent trail that has had many improvements underway as we speak.” The council approved the agreement. The conservation board will maintain the trail west of Highway 1 and the city is responsible for the trail east of Highway 1. The 14-mile trail between Washington and Keota is a former railroad right of way.
