2022 On the Trail Again: Re-creating in the World of Recreation

California Trails & Greenways is getting back to a traditional trails event format with an in-person gathering! This year’s theme symbolizes the idea of getting back to business in the new landscape in which we are now operating. Hear from trails professionals about the strategies developed to re-create programs and services, adapt to health and safety requirements, and accommodate the increased public demand and resource impacts. Learn more about:

  • Implementing new programs or projects that address increased visitation while still sustainably managing trails
  • Developing new public engagement strategies
  • Adapting park operations and facility requirements
  • Cultivating new and unusual partnerships
  • Working with stakeholders in innovative ways
  • Adjusting operational procedures and processes that will now be permanent
  • Securing novel funding opportunities

Join us in discovering innovative strategies for navigating the new normal!
