Eastern Nebraska Trails Network
Proceeds from the Omaha Biathlon go to Eastern Nebraska Trails Network which is a 501C(3) and are used for trail development in the greater Omaha and eastern Nebraska.
Eastern Nebraska Trails Network (ENTN), in cooperation with the Nebraska Trails Foundation (a 501 (C) (#) tax-deductible corporation), was formed in April 1992.
ENTN advocates and supports the development of multi-use trails throughout the Omaha and surrounding areas.
ENTN ongoing activities include assisting in the acquisition of land for trails, monitoring state legislative bills that impact the future of trails, and promoting public awareness.
These activities enable ENTN to work toward long term goals which the proceeds from this event will help fund:
Development of trails on land held by Douglas County and the Papio NRD that await future funding
Trail connection to Nebraska Game and Parks facilities at the Platte River
Trans-Missouri River connection to Iowa’s trails
Trail accessing Heron Haven.
Trail connection between Omaha and Lincoln
