The Ontario Trails Council spoke to Conservation Area Managers and Trail operators October 24th. We covered the topic of trailbuilding, as well as aspects of design, equipment, construction technique and the importance of human capital, education and training.  The presentation will be posted to the OTC Website under services/management. Nice to see Jay Cranstone of MMM Group, and as always Bill Goulding OTC Board Member, who endorsed my work. (Whew!) Thanks to Kevin Money of ERCA for the invitation.

To whom it may concern,

I am a graduate student at University of Guelph pursuing M.Sc. Rural Planning and Development. My research interest and my thesis topic are closely connected to horse industry within the Wellington County. I am currently working on a new horse trail network development and its impact to rural communities.

As the "Ontario Horse Trails" organization is one of the most honourable organizations within the Ontario horse industry I was hoping to distribute my research related survey through your FB web page. Please let me know if this would be possible.

This is the link for the survey:
