Our Ohio Trail Connections Summit scheduled for March of 2020 and rescheduled for November 14, 2020 has been again postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are pleased to be able to offer a series of interactive online presentations and workshops, featuring many of the speakers who were originally committed to present at the Summit. The series begins on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 with Amy Camp, Owner of Cycle Forward, a consulting company focused on Trails and Tourism.
Ms. Camp helped to launch the nationally recognized Trail Town Program® on the Great Allegheny Passage. She managed that program leading economic impact studies, the program’s marketing efforts, and on-the-ground improvement projects before starting her consulting practice. She shares how trail communities around the U.S. benefit from connecting to their trails and how Ohio rail-trails and trail networks might see similar results.
Amy will also share some of the best practices detailed in her forthcoming book, Deciding on Trails: 7 Practices of Healthy Trail Towns. She will present an overview of Trail Towns and then launch into related topics that include Cultivate a Trail Culture, Share Your Story, and How to Connect Trail to Town.
The December 2nd session will also kick-off the Ohio to Erie Trail Trail Town grant program, aimed at providing funds to groups who aim to transform a location along the Ohio to Erie trail into a Trail Town.
