Dogs, trails & open space are the topic of discussion.
Speaker: Julia Kertz Grant, Boise City Foothills and Open Space Manager
Dogs, trails & open space are the topic of discussion, highlighted by the dog use policy of the 125 mile Ridge to Rivers Trail System, an urban/rural interface of a rapidly growing community. Boise, ID, needed to know “What is the best way to negate the impacts dogs are having to resources on the heavily used trail system?” Learn about the process for reviewing/revising current trail policy, dealing with resource management where trails cross numerous ownerships (municipal, private, state and federal), building off leash areas, fostering responsible dog ownership through educated citizens and the partnerships formed for providing these solutions.
Off-road vehicles can have a substantial impact on the experience of other non-motorized visitors on trails that are shared or even on adjacent forest or park settings.
This research investigated the influence of several use-related, environmental, and managerial factors on soil loss on recreational trails and roads at Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, a unit of the U.S. National Park Service.
The sustainable management of ATV use is an expensive proposition requiring careful design, construction, and maintenance of ATV trails.
This research assessed the condition and sustainability of the trail system at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, a National Park Service unit that partners with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in the management of this unit.
