Regional Trails Coalition Summit--King County, WA


Well-Known Member
Hey, King County WA members, take a look at this:

I can't attend due to my work hours--any retired folks who might be interested? I got this info from a paper flyer posted at a local ebike dealer. The flyer also has the name and email of a person to contact with questions (which I didn't find at this web address). Here is that info:

"Email Lynn Knapp, the registration coordinator, with any questions 206-449-1131,"

Thurs, October 18
8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Mercer Island Community Center
Registration is now open!

King County Parks invites you to attend the 2018 Regional Trails Summit.
We are convening diverse leaders from around Puget Sound to create a broad-based coalition to expand and steward a world class network of regional trails. The summit’s focal theme will be the value that an interconnected regional trails network for all ages and abilities provides to our communities, and the role it plays in promoting economic, human, and environmental health and vitality. By coming together, we can leverage our efforts to build one of the best trails networks in the nation.
The connections between research, policy, implementation, and engagement at this summit will move us toward that goal, and we hope to have you there!
