Meet the staff members and volunteer leaders who are spearheading the development of this ambitious, 3,000-mile linear park.
Our staff members work from our headquarters on the Greenway in Durham, N.C., and from five remote locations along the route.
We value the diversity of perspectives, cultures, and experiences found throughout the Eastern Seaboard. We strive to respect and represent these diverse voices and we work to ensure that the Greenway's economic, environmental, and health benefits reach everyone, especially underserved communities.
