The Georgia Outdoor Recreation & Trail Summit: A Gathering with a Purpose
Georgia is traversed by a multitude of unique outdoor spaces and trails that define communities, connect people and get people outside. Yet there is need for so much more. There are many opportunities to increase access to a multitude of parks, communities, and experiences.
The 2022 Georgia Outdoor Recreation & Trail Summit will bring together non-profit leaders, city planners, elected officials, greenspace advocates, recreation enthusiasts, and others to envision an accelerated and ambitious approach to improving Georgia’s trails and outdoor recreation venues.
The Georgia Trail Summit was first convened in 2014 by the Georgia Trails Alliance, a nonprofit that aims to connect Georgia’s trail community. Hundreds of stakeholders have gathered to advance the role that trails play in our state’s health and culture. After hosting four successful summits, The Trust for Public Land will convene the 2022 Summit. Building upon the past success, the 2022 Summit will have a broader focus, encouraging participants to consider how trails, parks, waterways, and other assets can bring us all together.
