2014 Trails and Greenways Conference
THANK YOU for contributing to the success of the 2014 conference!
Interpretation --Conveying Values, Promoting Stewardship, Creating Legacies
With several significant trail related anniversaries taking place in 2014, the California Trails & Greenways Conference will explore how volunteers, advocates and agencies can convey trails' values in a manner that will promote support as a treasured legacy for generations to come.
Those of us who know trails understand that these pathways do more than simply lead us to a destination. In many ways they are themselves a destination -- filled with history, mystery, nature, lessons and awe -- sometimes subtle, sometimes as brilliant as the moon.
For those yet to be touched by trails' magic, how can we effectively convey to them the quiet, but life essential values trails' provide? How do we relay compelling stories that will truly be heard by our peers and neighbors, our elected representatives, our children and grandchildren? How do we provide clear, consistent messages of trails' benefits, and why stewardship and financial support are worthy investments?
Join us, as we explore a wide range of interpretive tools and techniques for effectively conveying our trail stories, while also addressing a diverse range of trail topics in order to firmly establish trail legacies for the future.
