Trails and Open Space Coalition
“Getting out the door with kids can be tough, and a little hectic. But recently, my family has benefitted from all of the trails and parks we have nearby for our physical and mental well-being. We use the TOSC #getoutspreadout information to help us find less crowded outdoor family friendly adventures. This is a valuable resource, so we recently joined the Trails and Open Spaces Coalition as members, because we want to support the things we care about the most.” -Sarah DiPasquale
