Wall1The Birkie Honor Wall sculpture has been installed at the “OO” Birkie Trailhead. The Birkie Trail system is a fantastic natural resource that touches the lives of many people including cross country skiers, runners, Nordic walkers and hikers who participate in trail events, and/or recreate on the trail.

The “Honor Wall” will provide the opportunity to recognize people and families for whom the Trail is or has been an important part of their lives. The “Wall” also provides a way to memorialize people who’ve enjoyed the trail in the past. The recognition or memorial will be accomplished by permanently installing small, engraved, stainless steel plaques, in exchange for a donation to the Birkie Trail Fund.

The sculpture was created by Sara Balbin, Dragonfly Studio, Drummond, WI.


Wall2A donation of $500 or more will provide the opportunity for you to recognize or memorialize your honoree. Your donation will solely be used by the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation to maintain and improve this great trail resource. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

The stainless steel plaques are 1 ½” X 3 ½” in size. You can specify what you would like to have engraved on the plaque to recognize your honoree. You can request up to 40 print characters on a plaque. The engraved plaques will then be permanently mounted on the Birkie Honor Wall.
