OUR THIRD PILLAR OF CONSERVATION
EXPAND GREENWAYS AND TRAILS
Recreational trails enhance the livability of our region and the health of residents. They’re popular because they’re so versatile—a place to play, get a workout, or take a romantic stroll.
We work with the Town of Davidson to expand the local trail system and link it with other regional trails. We also collaborate on effective wayfinding, educational, and interpretive signage to make trails more accessible and beneficial to the public. Ideally, trails and greenways are accompanied by a conservation easement to protect corridors so important to water quality, the trail experience, and wildlife habitats.
People consistently name greenways and trails as their favorite recreational amenities. Greenways improve our quality of life by promoting an active lifestyle, and they can attract commerce to a community while still preserving wildlife habitats. A core principle of conservation is connectivity, and by creating trail corridors, we can provide the most value to people, ecosystems, and wildlife.
