American Trails presents this webinar which is the first of a series of three on Sustainable Mountain Trails*, titled “Applying Foundations of Mountain Trail Sustainability to a Trail Network.” You’ll learn to apply these principles to a trail network “One Trail at a Time, One Mile at a Time.” The course includes Tools and Techniques, Examples, and Case Studies of mountain trail sustainability.
*Each webinar in this series is independent of each other and can be attended individually.
All three webinars in this series are applicable to all natural surface trail systems. Please see the following link to the presenter’s hallmark document: Guide to Sustainable Mountain Trails – Trail Assessment, Planning & Design Sketchbook, 2007 edition. Attendees will be challenged to reflect their role as leaders in the mountain trails community and how to use Art, Science, and Inspiration to craft successful multiple use Sustainable Mountain Trail projects. The presentation is geared to the novice, intermediate, and expert trail planner and designer. While the presenter’s experience is predominantly with mountain trails, the principles presented will apply to all natural and soft surface trails.
Learning Objectives: “It Can Be Done, You Can Do It!” Attendees will learn about:
- Professional landscape architectural and land management agency ethics that inform modern mountain trail sustainability by minimizing impacts to natural resources
- Books and documents that have inspired and influenced environmental ethics and mountain trail sustainability
- The paramount and subordinate landscape architectural criteria which influence mountain trail sustainability on the ground
- Techniques of the application of mountain trail sustainability on the ground
- Successful tools and techniques, examples and case studies will be employed to give insight into keys of mountain trail sustainability
