Join us for a four-session online course starting July 22, to learn to tell the economic story of your trail or trail system. Early registration discount extended!
Economic impact is a big selling point for funding construction, maintenance and expansion of trails and trail systems. Individually and as part of networks, in urban, suburban, and rural areas, trails have proven community, health, and economic benefits. This is true for walk/bike trails, mountain biking trails, water trails, long-distance trails, hiking trails, equestrian trails, ski trails, and motorized recreation trails alike.
Do you think you need to hire an economist and wade through piles of complex data to understand these economic benefits? Do you think the most you can expect is a soundbite on jobs and income the trail supports? Learn to paint a broad, research and data-based picture of the economic effects of your trail (or proposed trail) and tell that story to support advocacy, fundraising, economic development, and stronger community relationships. You will learn and adapt a proven approach that engages community resources without hiring an economist, consultant or communications shop.
