Building new trails takes more than manpower. Federal land managers like the U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service must evaluate proposed projects – whether they are building trails or planning for timber harvest - according to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Local governments may also get involved when their roadways that provide recreational access cross federal lands. Join policy advocates and land managers for an evening workshop to demystify NEPA and clarify the opportunities that citizens have to influence the design and execution of proposed actions on federal lands. Workshop participation is free, but pre-registration is required.
