National Trails Day gives NRTs promotional boost
National Recreation Trail designation brings a great opportunity to publicize and build support for your trail or greenway.
By Cherri Espersen
National Trails Day is held the first Saturday in June each year. Several National Recreation Trails used the occasion to show off their projects to both media and the public. Here are some good examples of trail events featuring NRT designations:
Lewis & Clark Bicentennial Trail (Pierre, SD)
Schuylkill River Water Trail (Schuylkill Haven, PA)
Lake Wobegon Trail (Stearns County, MN)
Poudre River Trail Corridor (Greeley, CO)
New River Trail State Park (Foster Falls, VA)
We hope all NRT managers will consider an event to celebrate their trail in 2003. We'd like to hear about your ideas for trail events! For information on the National Trails Day program visit www.americanhiking.org or call (301) 565-6704.
