Greenways And Trails Summit Scheduled For Franklin

September 9, 2013

An event called the Pennsylvania Greenways and Trails Summit will be held this month in Franklin.

Organizers say the three-day event is “designed for outdoor recreation enthusiasts, trail builders, businesses that provide goods and services, park and recreation professionals, conservationists and volunteers.”  In addition to educational sessions, workshops and networking opportunities, attendees will also have the chance to explore area trails, waterways and conservation easements, as well as downtown Franklin.

Special speakers will include Robert Stearns, a specialist in trails, greenways and bicycle and “open space” projects, and Texas A&M professor John Crompton, whose area of expertise lies in the areas of marketing and financing public leisure and tourism services.

More information is available by calling 677 – 3152 (Ext. 116), or by clicking on “Greenway Summit” on the website of the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (

The summit will be held September 15-17 at the Quality Inn and Conference Center.
