On May 31st, the El Paso County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution recognizing National Trails Day. They invited representatives from local groups to speak at the Board meeting about the importance of trails to our region. Present were representatives from: The Greenway Fund, the Rocky Mountain Field Institute, the Black Forest Trails Association, the Trails and Open Space Coalition, Friends of the Equestrian Skills Park, Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates and (not in the photo) the El Paso County Parks Advisory Board. All the groups praised El Paso County Parks for the stewardship of public lands, and their ongoing partnerships with local organizations. El Paso County had a full day of activities planned to celebrate National Trails Day June 2.
We applaud the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners for their recognition of the importance of trails and the outdoors for our region.
