Understanding the Past, Embracing the Future

As trail stewards, we seek to enhance access and opportunities for all trail users, while finding a balance between recreational use and resource protection. This takes the willingness to reflect on our history, the desire to take responsibility for our actions, andthe ability to anticipate future conditions and needs.

At this year’s event, we will explore the past, present and future of the role of trails in our ever-changing world.

Emerging Leaders Scholarship Program
