The Piedmont Legacy Trails Summit celebrates and supports local trails and the people who are making them happen. Now in its fifth year the Summit is sparking more regional cohesion and vision for our growing trail network in the Triad. We invite you to re-imagine systems, to join with natural allies, and to create strategies for a better future for the Triad and for North Carolina.
Check out the agenda below.
Piedmont Legacy Trails is excited to introduce Chuck Flink, one of the Nation’s leading greenway planners and designers, as our keynote for 2020. Chuck hails from Durham, NC where he is president of Greenways Incorporated, a consulting firm that he began in 1986. He has worked on projects both nationally and internationally, and has completed master plans for more than 7,500 miles of community greenways. He has authored a number of books and published periodical pieces, including what the American Planning Association refers to as the “best single reference” on greenway development: “Greenways: A Guide to Planning, Design, and Development.”
Joining us just shortly after his newest publication, Chuck will share messages from his book “The Greenway Imperative: Connecting Communities and Landscapes for a Sustainable Future” which is anticipated for release on March 3, 2020.
Sunrise Books, High Point’s only independent book store, will have on-site book sales at the Summit. If you purchase your book at the Summit, Sunrise Books is generously donating a portion of sales to Piedmont Legacy Trails! You can get your copy of The Greenway Imperative for $28.95. Both Cash and Cards will be accepted. And Chuck is kindly conducting a book signing after his presentation!
The Summit convenes natural allies from many sectors to bring their strengths, to learn from each other, and to inspire one another to create innovative, inclusive, and beautiful trails across the Piedmont Triad.
