Nominations for the 2019 Coalition for Recreational Trails Achievement Awards are due May 1, 2019.
During Great Outdoors Month® 2019– also known as June – the Coalition for Recreational Trails (CRT) will be presenting its 21th annual Recreational Trails Program (RTP) Achievement Awards in Washington, D.C. on Capitol Hill. This awards program has been a great success for the CRT and the RTP, showcasing excellent projects made possible by RTP funding and enhancing awareness and appreciation of the RTP among Members of Congress and other key officials.
The CRT letter announcing this year’s awards program and the 2019 nomination form is now available and attached to this page. Please spread the word amongst your networks to help ensure that we have an impressive group of nominees from which to select this year’s winners. Nominations are due May 1, 2019.
The CRT’s Achievement Awards provide both the eventual award winners and other nominees with the opportunity to increase awareness of their projects. Not only is information on each winning project featured on the American Trails website, but photos and other materials included as part of additional nominations are often used to highlight RTP projects in the Federal Highway Administration Annual Report, on CRT’s Facebook page, and in the online RTP Database image gallery.
If you have any questions, you can contact CRT Awards Committee Chair Duane Taylor at [email protected] or 703-416-0444.

The National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service is pleased to announce 48 funded projects.
This February and March, over 120 advocates virtually hiked the halls of Congress to call for action to protect and expand access for all to public lands and trails. These efforts, led by the Partnership for the National Trails System and American Hiking Society, developed a series of common messages and legislative priorities for the coming Federal fiscal year. We encourage all of our partners to download the Hike the Hill materials now to help build a common agenda for the entire trails community.
