California Trails and Greenways Conference
The Bureau of Land Management was a sponsor of The 28th California Trails & Greenways Conference, held May 8-10, 2013 at the Granlibakken Conference Center and Lodge, located on the west shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe. The California Trails & Greenways Conference provided trail professionals, advocates, volunteers and users with a venue for sharing practical, up-to-date trail management and advocacy skills; as well as a forum for networking and building support for accessible, inter-connected, sustainable trail systems. Bureau of Land Management employees, Josh Hammari, Mark Conley and Sara Kaner, met with many State and Federal trail partners to enhance and strengthen our shared trails system.

The theme for this year was Trails with Grace: A Path to Preservation & Sustainability.
Trails are an essential part of natural and cultural habitats. Deer trails, migration routes, and a host of pathways around the globe have been used by countless creatures for millions of years. The conference is hosted by California State Parks’ Statewide Trails Section and the nonprofit California Trails Conference Foundation.
