Did you know that there are ways to quantify a region’s access to outdoor recreation? Thanks to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the Trust for Public Land, and We Conserve PA, trail advocates now have access to extensive interactive maps that can be used to gauge how our region is doing in providing different kinds of recreation to various communities.

Today we have provided a link to this video that explains this project and shows both how to find this powerful resource and how to use it. Tomorrow we will share what these tools can teach us about the situation in Beaver County. So, be sure to follow RiverWise on social media so you don’t miss out. Together we can save trails in Beaver County and lead our region into the future.
