Why Advocacy?

Don't take trails for granted.

It is our duty as trail stewards to raise awareness of issues affecting our ability to connect with nature, whether that’s attending local town hall meetings or traveling to Albany, Trenton, and Washington, D.C., to discuss directly with elected officials the importance of ample access to open space. When you speak up for trails, your voice makes a difference—and as one of the 10,000-plus members of the Trail Conference, that amplified message accomplishes great things.
