Introducing the Utah Trails Forum Webinar Series:
Conservation, Recreation, and Trails
The Utah Trails Forum is excited to announce our next webinar series: Conservation, Recreation, and Trails. This three part series will look at the crucial junction between conserving healthy ecosystems and providing responsible recreation opportunities. Some of the questions we will discuss: Who are the important partners when pursing a trail project on or near sensitive habitat? What is a land trust and how do I work with them? What are the best practices for protecting wildlife and cultural resources? Where do trails simply not belong? The Utah Trails Forum webinars are planned as interactive, network-building sessions, so please bring your own questions and get excited for breakout discussions alongside the panel presentations. We hope you’ll join for all three sessions!
