Are you worried about the future of our trails and public lands, but not sure what you can do? Calling your congressional delegation about trails issues is one of the most powerful things we can do as individuals.
You don’t need to be an expert on the issue, but the more people who call and talk about the importance of trails in their daily lives, the more likely your representative is to notice. It really does work!
So, take five minutes and call your representatives’ offices—you can even call while on a walk enjoying the trails, public lands, and local parks you love.
