Thank you to everyone who was able to join Tuesday's webinar. All of us here at Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) were truly impressed by the hundreds of you who joined, your insightful questions and the diversity of organizations you represent! If you were unable to join, you were missed, but there are thankfully still two primary opportunities to participate in the conversation:
- As many of you have requested, the webinar was recorded and is now available from our main MAP-21 webinar page.
- The second webinar, designed for implementers of trail, walking and bicycling projects, has been scheduled for July 31 at 1 p.m. EDT. Details will be forthcoming, but confirmed panelists include Christopher Douwes, trails and enhancements program manager at the Federal Highway Administration, and Tracy Hadden Loh, director of the National Transportation Enhancements Clearinghouse. Please pre-register on the MAP-21 webinar page if you have not already done so. (Note that this not will be the first step of your registration. You will receive a follow-up notice in the coming week with a link to complete the process.)
Additionally, we'd like to extend a huge thanks to our guest panelists on Tuesday's webinar, both of whom added immeasurably to the knowledge base: David Tyahla of the National Recreation and Park Association and Beth Osborne from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Finally, if you have not already done so, we encourage you to join RTC's partner email list. This low-volume list is specifically for professionals for whom trails, walking, bicycling and physical activity relate in some way to your professional lives. Emails sent selectively to this list include announcements about webinars and trainings; notices of funding resources and guidance; opportunities to add your name to national sign-on letters, and more. Please join this list now.
As always, please contact RTC's Director of Policy Outreach Kartik Sribarra at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments.

Thank you, again, and we look forward to continuing our work with all of you.
