Join the Student Conservation Association and Arizona Trail Association for an inspiring workshop on various youth outreach initiatives that effectively empower the next generation of trail stewards. Urban trails are designed to provide recreation and transportation routes for communities. Learn how the Student Conservation Association has partnered with federal, state, and non-profit agencies in Washington, D.C. to engage community members in trail-stewardship activities while completing much-needed maintenance to heavily used trail networks. Rural communities are often the last to know about the resources in their own backyard. Learn how the Arizona Trail Association is engaging rural youth in the management of the Arizona National Scenic Trail through experience, education and internships.
