After much preparation, the first ever Southeast Regional Foot Trails
Conference is set for April 26-28, 2002. It's an exciting opportunity for
AHS to help trail organizations and public agencies develop a regional
network of hiking trails throughout the popular areas of the Southeast.
The program includes educational sessions on how to engage the community,
and creatively fundraise in addition to important networking opportunities.
There will also be keynote presentations by Nimblewill Nomad and Tom Ross
(National Center for Recreation and Conservation).
This is what AHS is all about- establishing, protecting and maintaining foot
trails in America. Join us!
