Statewide Trails Caucus in Wenatchee

No matter the mode of travel, Washington State is rich with trails.  Motorized and non-motorized trails crisscross the backcountry, and increasingly our cities and suburbs are linked by paved multi-use trails.  Water trails connect access points along our major rivers and waterways.  When the snow falls, groomed routes provide pathways for snowmobiles, skiers and snowshoers.   Virtually every trail has a community of advocates and a public agency that sees to its maintenance and management and, every two years, the  The Washington State Trails Coalition brings those advocates together for a conference to help protect, promote and enhance the statewide trail system.

On September 13, trail advocates and recreation managers will gather at the Wenatchee Community Center for the  biennial Washington State Trails Caucus.  The Washington State Trails Coalition will host the one-day meeting to provide an opportunity for networking and idea sharing among members of the state’s diverse trail community.  The agenda features a panel presentation about trail efforts in the greater Wenatchee area, a fast-paced “show and tell” featuring short presentations about innovative trail projects, updates from Washington state agencies including the State Parks & Recreation Commission, the Department of Natural Resources and the Recreation and Conservation Office.  In addition, participants will contribute to a brief strategic planning session for the future of Washington State Trails Coalition. 

Individuals with a passion for trails are welcomed to participate.  Registration is $15 and includes lunch. Details and the complete agenda for the day can be found here at the Washington State Trails Coalition.
