Mark Halwa, Chair of the Columbia River Greenways Trail Alliance, will be speaking on the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA)'s three day World Summit in Santa Fe, NM on October 10-13, 2012. Mark and his wife, Lori, attended the conference to find out how other trail users around the world are developing, funding and maintaining trails for all kinds of outdoor users. It was sold out, 350 delegates from places as far away as Singapore and Israel attended, as well as 50 IMBA staff and another 50 or more press and industry representatives.
The successes and failures that were shared have a lot in common with the Columbia Valley - so Mark took notes, pictures and emailed all the speakers to ask for their presentations. The three days of material has now been condensed into about an hour and he would like to present the highlights in Golden on Thursday October 24th. There is no charge to attend.
If you are interested in trails and building a coalition of outdoor enthusiasts, please come along. The presentation will begin at 7:00 PM sharp, CBT Office Boardroom on 8th Ave North in Golden.
