Following up on our successful Clark County Trails Summit in June, it’s time to come together again to take our good thinking and conversations to the next level and turn them into actions. We'll dig into the opportunities we identified last time around for potential partnerships, raising awareness of trails to the broader community, and developing more robust programs – so be prepared to use your brain power to develop meaningful strategies to move our work forward.
