2000 National Tails Symposium

Trails and the American Spirit: 2000 and Beyond

-- Back to Symposium Index --

 17th California Trails and Greenways Conference

Thursday - September 21
This year's program will focus on the issues of changing population dynamics in the state and their potential impact on implementing trails and greenways. Morning speakers will provide an overview of expected demographic changes, as well as a framework for understanding how and why we need to work with diverse groups of people.

Our working definition of diversity is quite broad. We will look at how to bring the widest range of people into the "trails community" regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, ability, type of use, or even their opinion about the benefits of trails. We will go beyond this overview to look at the 2000 California State Trails Plan, and how can we work with different people and help to implement this plan. At the end of the day, we hope to have a specific set of actions to support both the diversification of the Californian trails community and the implementation of the State Trails Plan. The one-day conference within the Symposium will also include the annual California Trail Award program presentation during the luncheon, which is included in the $25 registration fee.

You may register for and attend the California Conference, even if you cannot participate in the Symposium. Similarly, Symposium participants from outside of California area are also welcome and encouraged to participate in the California Conference.
