Better training and promotion help build more sustainable trails, empower volunteers to be more effective, and expand recreation, public participation, and ecotourism. This session will present educational opportunities, training providers, and a wide range of resources for land and water trails. Efforts of the National Trails Training Partnership in promoting and coordinating training will be highlighted. The session will discuss ways to work with states, and to develop and fund regional training initiatives as well as learning about creating a Water Trails Clearinghouse for regional coordination and promotion. Join us in sharing ideas and needs for trails training, improving skills, and building public involvement.
Everything you need to know about the positive impact of trails on health, environment, economics, and more.
