Universal Trails Workshop Registration Nearly Full

The Universal Trails and Outdoors for Everyone Workshop is – as expected – attracting significant attention and interest, and MALT member land trusts that have not yet signed up for the workshop are encouraged to do so immediately. The July 8-10 workshop, led by Five Valleys Land Trust and MALT, with support from the Land Trust Alliance, takes place in Missoula and opens with a July 8 evening panel presentation that is open to the public. The panel topic is “Voices from the Community: Why Access, Equity, and Inclusion Matter.” Day 2 of the workshop offers technical advice about universal access trails planning, design and maintenance. It is limited to 30 people, and is very close to full. Land trusts should contact Ryan Stutzman at Five Valleys immediately to sign up. Day 3 features an outdoor trail building session.
