One of the great strengths of Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is
its community, and the network of friends and supporters we have across the
country. This strong and diverse partnership of advocates, influencers and passionate
local people has helped us do important work like raise support for new
rail-trail projects, defend programs that fund trail development and
investments in active transportation, and spread the word about rail-trails in
Over the next few years, we're hoping to make this community
even stronger by improving and expanding our channels of communication. And we
are hoping that you can play a key role.
Do you blog about biking in your region? Perhaps you're the
webmaster of a local site about trails or hiking groups? Or maybe you do some
writing for your local paper about active transportation, or lobby for new bike
infrastructure in your city?
Then we want to keep you in the loop on trails and active
transportation news from around America that might impact what happens in your
neck of the woods.
Introduce yourself to me at firstname.lastname@example.org., and
I'll add your contact info to a new email list I'm building of Bloggers, Amplifiers,
Advocates and Writers - a community specially designed for sharing the latest
new and info.
I look forward to working closely with you, and hearing about what's happening on the trails and sidewalks, and in the meeting rooms and newspaper pages, of your neighborhood.
Stay in touch,
What a great idea! I'm new at this & only have a facebook page so far. I've re-posted at least one of your articles, if not more! The trails are being developed in our bi-county town, and some exciting improvements are taking place right now. I hope you like my page!
I am an avid cyclist and love Rails to Trails. I have been on quite a few of the trails across the U.S. and plan to ride many more. I post all the time on Facebook with photos. Would enjoy helping you with this project.
