With gratitude to a long list of contributors, we are pleased to announce the release of our Ready, Set, Plan!? Introductory Guide to Trails Planning and Development.
Ready, Set, Plan!? is a guide for anyone who wants to better understand trails planning, decision making, and trail project development. If you’re a trail enthusiast with big ideas, a trail advocate, a stewardship volunteer, or public agency staff person interfacing with local partners, this guide is for you.
The guide was made possible with support from Bureau of Land Management and Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.

You can access an edited recording of our guide launch webinar below. Unfortunately we had some technical difficulties this month and didn't get a recording of our event grand marshal, Mel Huie's opening remarks. We also had to cut out the video we shared, but you can access the npGreenway video with sound on YouTube here.
Thanks to our presenters!
