If you haven’t been to Columbus lately, you’ll be amazed at their commitment to regional trails and first-class urban planning. Our slate of speakers offers something for everyone.

Sincere thanks to our generous sponsors who make the Trail Summit possible.

Conservation speakers at the next Trail Summit!

Interested in hearing how land trusts activate their conserved areas for the public? We certainly are as we begin one of our first park builds with our parent organization Southeastern Trust for Parks and Land. Well, we’re all in luck; in April 2017, for the first time at the annual Georgia Trail Summit, five conservation groups are on the program:

will all attend the trail summit and share lessons learned in trail building, maintenance, and stewardship, they will share resources, successful volunteer management, restoration methods, and in one case the connectivity of 750 miles of trail.

We are eager to highlight the synergies in conservation work and trail development and hope that you’ll consider attending the summit, take some notes, and become a volunteer as we jump in to trail development. Thanks for being part of the family.

Register and/or browse the program here.

We have a program!

Trailhounds, the program is now confirmed! Take a look at the terrific speakers and ideas they’ll present, save a spot in our popular mobile workshops for all trail users, and get excited about the riverside networking parties all on April 20-22 in Columbus.

Registration is now open. We believe this will be the best Trail Summit yet. AICP CM credits are available for the first time from our partners at the Georgia Planning Association. Our early bird registration fee is only $85 before March 1.

Our theme is Plan. Fund. Build. Manage.  The program is heavy on how-to sessions with practical content on the full life cycle of successful trails, from concept and construction to operations and long-term sustainability.
