This session will look at professional development as a means of reaching out to communities and engaging youth in trail activities. A Trail to Every Classroom (TTEC) was developed by the National Park Service and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy as an innovative three-season program for K-12 teachers that promotes a conservation ethic, civic participation, and healthy lifestyles by using the Appalachian Trail as an educational and active recreational resource.
