It’s an honor to be speaking at the 15th National Scenic and Historic Trails Conference, just outside Nashville, Tennessee. The conference is sponsored by the Partnership for the National Trails System (PNTS) and my topic is “Working with Youth and Technology to Promote Our Trails.” Here is the synopsis:

It’s important in today’s fast-paced era to understand and utilize technology. This workshop will give participants the ability to make the best use of technology on behalf of our national trails – including tips for marketing, networking, better organization, and more. We will speak about the topic in a friendly, entertaining manner and get to the nitty-gritty of the challenges. Youth participants will be on hand to help design specific ways for involving youth and diverse communities in your projects as well. The priority is for attendees to emerge with practical ideas that can be put use immediately. Helpful handouts and a free e-book will be provided to participants.



Hope to see you there!
