Our inaugural Mid-Atlantic Greenways & Trails Summit will bring together leaders and advocates of active transportation and greenway and trail development to advance bicycling and walking innovations across the region.
We will celebrate the region's progress in developing the East Coast Greenway and other greenway and trail networks while looking at strategies for further advances throughout Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Washington D.C.
Registration closes March 22.
We're excited to bring each of these inspiring leaders to speak on Friday, April 5, offering their perspectives on greenways and trails and what they mean to our communities. Click each speaker's photo to learn more about their work.
