The Pennsylvania Greenways and Trails Summit brings together professionals, volunteers, and trail enthusiasts for three days of mobile workshops, education sessions, and networking. This biennial event provides 200-250 trail builders, volunteers, advocates, park and recreation professionals, and motorized/non-motorized trail users with essential information needed to build, manage, and maintain trails throughout Pennsylvania. The summit draws participants from a variety of professions including private consultants, local and state governments, and industry stakeholders. Most trail user groups are represented including hikers, bikers, paddlers, off-highway vehicle riders and volunteers.
The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association (PALTA), in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), is seeking proposals from organizations to host the Greenways and Trails Summit in the fall of 2019 and 2021.
For the 2019 summit, the selection committee will give priority to proposals from organizations seeking to hold the conference in central Pennsylvania. Although this is the preferred location, all competitive proposals will be considered. There is no location preference for the 2021 summit.
Proposals are due May 21, 2018 and will be selected and announced in June 2018.
