The cities in Cameron County began working together a few years ago to develop and plan a 428 mile network of trails (on road, off road, on water) that connects them to each other as well as to the most treasured environmental and historic sites in the county. The “Active Plan” now has been named the “Caracara Trails” and continues to build momentum with public support, a national endorsement, aggressive grant writing, a Project Manager and strong coalition participation. Not sitting on the shelf, the Plan is “living and growing”. Join us in hearing about updates and progress in our region.
- Learn the value of working together towards a plan.
- Learn how to include multiple goals when developing a plan for a trail network and alternative active transportation.
- Learn how not to be paralyzed by the lack of funds but rather learn how much can be done before identifying funds.
Learners will listen to the Caracara Trail Plan history and progress and via discussion and video should be able to consider trail planning in their own areas.
