Yesterday was the last day of the National Trials Symposium. For some housekeeping, the name I have been using for the symposium was a little wrong. What I attended as the 2008 National Trails Symposium presented by American Trails
OK, that's corrected. Was a short day. No coffee Trail Talk, just 2 sessions and the closing luncheon.
Creating Trails the Users Want So You Don't Get the Trails You Don't Want was the first session I attended. Two of the 3 presenters are ATV riders - but most of the information presented is applicable to most all trails. The third present is from Minnesota DNR and presented 3 case studies.
The final session I attended was Volunteer Stewardship Planning and Integrating Youth and Trails. This was probably the least interested for me.
The Symposium ended with a luncheon address by Richard Louv, author of "Last Child in the Woods".
Now, I have been assembling my notes to forward to interested parties.
On to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving.
