TRAIL TOYS & PLAY TOYS
This special expo allows exhibitors/vendors to showcase their products and/or services at work. A separate event, at an off-site location features the demonstration of equipment, tools and materials used in the construction, maintenance & signing of trails &endash; from pack animals to tractors. Prior to "Trail Toys", vendors will have had the opportunity to show their products in the exhibit hall at the conference site and to discuss their products with interested symposium participants. The Expo is designed to move one step farther and allow vendors to actually show "Trail Toys" at work!
SILENT AUCTION & DOOR PRIZES
Support the important work American Trails does to serve you throughout the year and bring attention to your organization by soliciting/contributing items for the silent auction and for door prizes. No item is too large or too small! Use your imaginationÉ water bottles, t-shirts, gift certificates, books, gear, trip packages, bicycles, etc. This year, in keeping with American Trails' efforts to support trail advocacy, AT will split the sale proceeds on any auction items brought in by trail-related organizations.
Why not submit a nomination? The National Trails Awards Program recognizes the tremendous contributions of volunteers, professionals and other leaders who are working to create a national system of trails for all Americans.
