In 2016 our conference, Creating Community – Connecting Communities, brought together hundreds of participants from all over Washington and the Pacific Northwest. Held in Richland, the conference boasted 36 breakout sessions, and multiple field visits to nearby trails. Attendees represented all levels of government, from federal agency staff to local park districts; non-profit organizations; Tribal governments; business firms and consultants; trail users; students and conservation corps members.
Session speakers brought their expertise from a wide variety of backgrounds, representing many state and local parks and trails organizations, youth groups, technology industries, WSDOT, the US Forest Service, and the Washington Recreation and Conservation Office, along with many more.
Best of all, every Trails Conference provides a great opportunity to learn, to connect with other trail supporters and advocates, and to have a great time! See what some of the 2014 attendees had to say about the value of attending that conference.
We are proud of what we accomplished with our 2016 conference, and look forward to continuing on the same track of excellence at our 2018 Conference in Wenatchee, WA. We hope you won’t miss out on the opportunity and that you’ll register now!
Remember to mark your calendars for the Trails Conference at the Wenatchee Convention Center, October 25-27, 2018.
