Trail Professionals and Advocates,
Mark your calendars NOW! The 26th California Trails & Greenways Conference will be held at the San Ramon Marriott at the base of Mt. Diablo State Park in Contra Costa County, from Monday, April 11 through Wednesday, April 13, 2011. This year’s conference venue will highlight the skills and wisdom of one of the most progressive and diverse trails communities in the nation, providing unique learning opportunities for designing, building and managing trails in heavily populated urban areas. Rural trail skill building opportunities will also be plentiful with access to Mt. Diablo State Park and regional open space preserves only minutes away.
The California Trails & Greenways Conference provides non-motorized trail professionals, advocates and volunteers with a venue for learning practical, up-to-date trail management skills; as well as a forum for networking and building support for accessible, inter-connected, quality trail systems. All activities are designed to increase the knowledge of trail, recreational and wild land management professionals and advocates, both novice and expert in the field in order to improve trail systems and programs throughout California. Current details and information about past conferences can be found on www.parks.ca.gov/trails/conference.
