In a time when so many things are uncertain, one thing is clear: more people are going outside to walk, run, or ride a bike. As a result, trails, bikeways, sidewalks, and parks have been experiencing an influx of traffic during the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet despite the proven physical and mental health benefits, some areas of our community still lack access to these basic amenities. Join Tri-State Trails for our biennial Summit as we explore how access, equity, and justice intersect in our region’s trail and bikeway network. We are excited to feature Tamika Butler as our keynote speaker on Thursday, October 29 at 7 PM.
In an effort to make this content more accessible to a wider audience of residents and advocates, we are making our keynote session on October 29 free to attend. Registration is required to receive the Zoom webinar link. If you are able, we encourage you to make a donation or sponsor the summit to support our work to connect and expand the trail and bikeway network in the Tri-State.
