The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) in partnership with the Massachusetts Recreational Trail Advisory Board (MARTAB) presents the 2014 Massachusetts Trails Conference to be held on Saturday, November 8, 2014 at the Double Tree Hotel and Conference Center in Leominster.   The conference is funded through the Recreational Trails Program, a grant program which supports motorized and non-motorized trail construction and enhancement across the Commonwealth.

Janet Zeller, Accessibility Program Manager for the USDA Forest Service, has signed on as keynote speaker!  Janet has worked in the field of accessibility for two decades and has helped develop and implement accessibility programs and policies at all levels of the agency. She also teaches accessibility and universal design for programs and facilities at a wide range of training sessions nationally.

Please join the Massachusetts trail community for a day of learning, sharing, networking and, new to this year, opportunities for fieldtrips and getting your hands dirty out on the trails!

An opportunity to register will be announced later this year.  If you are not on the RTP contact list, please contact Amanda Lewis, Recreational Trails Program Coordinator, at amanda.lewis@state.ma.us to be added and receive conference updates and registration information.  
Hope to see you there!
