Overview

Florida Greenways and Trails Foundation President Dale Allen will discuss the new “Close the Gap” Campaign to create a coast-to-coast trail system from the Gulf of Mexico to the Canaveral National Seashore. The Foundation is Florida's chief advocacy organization for non-motorized trails. The Foundation supports greater use of trails for recreation, for fitness and health, for reducing carbon emissions, for attracting leisure travelers, for building community, for beautification, and for a larger role in evolving multi-modal transportation policy. Allen will discuss the campaign and acquisition and planning strategies that local governments, planners, concerned citizens and others can use to assist with the protection of key gaps in the system.
