WeConservePA in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) is seeking proposals from organizations (or partnerships) to host the statewide Pennsylvania Greenways and Trails Summit in fall 2025.

The Pennsylvania Greenways and Trails Summit brings together professionals, volunteers, and trail enthusiasts alike for three days of mobile workshops, education sessions, and networking. This biennial event provides trail builders, volunteers, advocates, park and recreation professionals, and motorized/non-motorized trail users with essential information needed to build, manage, and maintain trails throughout the Commonwealth. The summit draws participation from a variety of professions including private consultants, local and state governments, and industry stakeholders. Most trail user groups are represented including hikers, bikers, paddlers, off-highway vehicle riders and volunteers.

A key element in the selection of the summit host will be the proven ability to enrich the summit with local assets, including field tour sites as well as varied opportunities for recreation, and to garner enthusiastic support (including financial sponsorship) from other local organizations, stakeholders, and trail users.

Full proposal details and submission instructions can be found here (note: deadline for submission is January 26, 2023). Proposals will be selected and announced spring 2023.
