PNTS - Fall Workshop (Spring Workshop Cancelled)

Regrettably, we have decided by consensus among PNTS leadership and workshop leads to cancel the Partnership’s Spring National Trails Workshop scheduled for May 18-22, 2020 at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. This is highly unfortunate and yet we believe the right decision under these unusual circumstances.
