In partnership with the National Park ServiceAmerican Trails is excited to offer this webinar FREE OF CHARGE. This webinar will cover innovative funding strategies for water and land trails with two case studies of strong public-private partnerships.

How do major trail infrastructure and improvement projects take shape in light of tight budgets and limited public resources? How can public-private partnerships help take trails from vision to reality? Learn more about how two Michigan organizations charted new courses in funding waters and helped support miles of trails and related infrastructure through strong public-private partnerships. Learn about funding strategies related to blueways and greenways; what worked (and what didn’t) to help bring life to water trails and multi-use trails in diverse settings across the state — from urban downtowns and suburban settings, to national lakeshores and small towns.
