We want to thank everyone to participated in the Outdoors For All and Trails For All People workshops! We look forward to sharing what we learned as well as continuing these conversations. Also, thank you to the partners and events sponsors that helped make these events possible!
Outdoors For All is a new initiative that focuses on access to green spaces and consists of two separate events. The first event on Wednesday, October 18th is Outdoors for All: A Community Conversation about Nature, Health, and Equity. This interactive workshop will discuss the importance of access to green spaces as we work to understand the physical, economic, and emotional barriers to spending time in nature. The week will end with TRAILS FOR ALL PEOPLE a two-day workshop on October 19 and 20 that reviews best management practices for inclusive planning, design, construction, and management of pedestrian trails that are usable by all people. This workshop will be led by Larry Knutson, president of Penn Trails LLC.
