Register now for the Pierce County Trails Conference on Thursday, September 28th, 5-7:30 PM

We invite you to join us at the 17th Annual Pierce County Trails Conference on Thursday, September 28th from 5-7:30 in the Environmental Services Building at Chambers Creek Regional Park. Registration is now open and all are welcome, so please share this announcement widely.

This year our theme is “Connecting Paths, Partnerships & People”. We will be featuring a panel of trail advocates from Leafline Trails Coalition, the Eastrail Partners, and also the Puget Sound to Pacific Collaborative and hearing about important lessons learned as they forged cooperative agreements to develop trails in our region and connect communities. We will also have important project updates for trails in Pierce County, Trail Awards, and dinner. PLUS, based on feedback, we have built in extra time at the beginning of the evening for networking so you can make connections and deepen the relationships that help our regional trail network to progress (so don’t be late!). This will be a powerful night of information sharing so we hope you will join us!

Please note that members of FGT are entitled to discounted admission. Please contact us if you or your organization are a member but you have not received instructions about how to use this benefit.
