HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is accepting nominations for three open positions on the 2017 Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee, DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn announced today.
The advisory committee is charged with implementing recommendations of the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan to develop a statewide land and water trail network to facilitate recreation, transportation, and healthy lifestyles. The 20-member DCNR-appointed committee represents both motorized and non-motorized trail users and advises the commonwealth on the use of state and federal trail funding.
"From municipal greenways linking towns and villages, to iconic trails threading along mountain ridges, Pennsylvania is blessed with a wealth of incredible trails offering all types of outdoors pursuits," Dunn said. "We are hoping to tap that pool of trail supporters who keep Pennsylvania at the forefront of quality trail activities by seeking solid representation of these interests as we form a new Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee for the coming year."
DCNR is accepting nominations for three open positions on the committee representing the following user groups: water trail users; horseback riding; and member-at-large. Members will serve a three-year term starting Jan. 1, 2017.
