Sustainable Trails and Accessibility: How to keep our wild lands wild while being more inclusive
Tuesday, May 17; Noon-1:30pm

Integration of these factors results in trails that reduce environmental impacts and open the outdoors to hikers of all abilities while maintaining the character of the trail and reducing trail maintenance.
