UT United States

As 2020 demonstrated, recreational opportunities and trails are highly valued, shown by the surges in trail use. How can communities, especially rural communities, find ways to improve outdoor recreation opportunities for their residents and visitors?

The Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation and the Utah Trails Forum are thrilled to host Amy Camp, author of the new book “Deciding on Trails: 7 Practices of Healthy Trail Towns” for this very special webinar. Her book is a call to action to trail communities and those that want to cultivate a trail culture, embrace Trail Town best practices, and once and for all, to “decide on trails. She’ll share with us lessons learned in this pioneering program and many others the embrace of the value of a rail trail, water trail, hiking trail, or road trail to the towns on the trail’s map.

We’ll be giving away a few copies of the book “Deciding on Trails” during the webinar to some lucky attendees. So this is an opportunity not to be missed!
