The work of the members of the Council on Greenways & Trails is often behind the scenes.  The results are well known and accessed by the public for recreation, and protect the conservation values of our natural resources.  The 2020 Greenways Awards listed below and other projects on this website are just a few examples of this work. 

What's next in 2021?

The Council members will continue to create, maintain and enhance the outdoor spaces that have become so much more important in this strange year.
