With a theme (that connects to both the history and future of both Scranton and Pennsylvania at large) of “Connecting an Industrious Past to an Innovative Future,” this Summit makes space for a range of topics both familiar and forward-leaning in the trail world. Active transportation, healthy community movements, motorized trails, connecting communities, the economic impacts of outdoor recreation, and many more topics will be explored through 44 workshops and mobile seminars. Attendees can make and renew connections during the two receptions and other networking time, and be inspired by nationally renowned keynote speaker John Simmerman (Active Towns). Join with hundreds of friends and colleagues at Pennsylvania’s premiere training, networking, and inspirational event for greenways and trails.
