For the past several months, the Northeast Washington Sustainable Tourism and Recreation Team (NEWSTART) has facilitated an all-hands, all-lands coalition of land managers and trail advocates that are working on a strategic plan for trail development and stewardship in our region, including motorized trails. The plan is being developed in accordance with guidelines provided by the Washington State Recreation & Conservation Office (RCO) and will be filed with the state. A strategic trail plan will bolster grant applications for partners who adopt it and pursue its objectives; having a plan increases opportunities to fund trail systems in the NE Washington community.
NEWSTART would very much appreciate hearing your thoughts about trails in Northeast Washington. Please take our 20 minute survey that will help us shape the future of outdoor recreation in the tri-county area. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NEWATrailStrategy
