Speaker: Bill Barker, FAICP, FITE

In the first part of this session, Bill Barker will discuss how an off-road trail has many human health benefits. Mental and physical health benefits accrue from just being in nature, from active transportation, and from having a pathway away from motorized traffic. To the extent that the path user is displacing motorized travel, additional health benefits accrue to others in the community as well as the surrounding ecosystems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the mental and physical health benefits from off-road trails

In the second part of this presentation, Bill will introduce The Great Springs Project which, through partnerships and bold initiative, is creating a network of springs-to-springs trails and protected natural areas of the Edwards Aquifer between San Antonio and Austin.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the scope, location and benefits of The Great Springs Project
  • Name the 4,000 year old White Shaman cave painting that could be an early vision of this springs-to-springs trail

After the second presentation and subsequent question/answer period, the presenter would appreciate feedback.
