California Trails Conference Foundation
The mission of the California Trails Conference Foundation is to inspire recreational trail leadership through the annual California Trails and Greenways Conference. To achieve this mission, the Foundation, in collaboration with California State Parks, will create venues that will enable trail professionals and advocates to:
- Learn from a broad range of high quality, up-to-date educational sessions, workshops, presentations and other teaching venues.
- Network for the purpose of learning from the experiences of others, seeking or giving advice, building support for trail endeavors, and finding partnership opportunities.
The California Trails Conference Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax deductible nonprofit organization that assists with the planning and operation of the California Trails & Greenways Conference; and serves as the Conference’s fiscal agent. The Conference is self-funded and all funds raised by the Foundation are applied directly to Conference costs.
California Trails & Greenways 2021
Currently, California Trails and Greenways 2021 is scheduled to be held in Modesto from April 14th – 16th. Given the uncertainty created by the on-going pandemic, we are working on a variety of alternatives to the traditional in-person California Trails and Greenways training. More details coming soon!
We are gathering workshop and session proposals and trail award nominations for presentation in whatever format – in person or virtually – that is determined to be safe and permissible. For more information, please go to our Official Conference Website.
