Rural Trails as Economic Engines, Cultural Assets, and Community Anchors

Thursday, April 21, 2016 - 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm Eastern.

Many rural communities and small towns are rediscovering their recreational and scenic assets and are looking for ways to leverage these assets to boost economic development and community pride. This webinar will highlight great examples of rural trail projects that link people to place and reconnect the human and natural environments--providing access to nature and preserving sensitive ecosystems, while promoting local economic and cultural assets. This free 60-minute webinar is co-sponsored by the Orton Family Foundation and the Citizens' Institute on Rural Design.
