Fall Trail Town Workshops In Venango, Fayette Counties

The Trail Town Program will hold two workshops in November on trip planning and marketing and running a sustainable business for local governments, businesses and others interested in promoting their local trails.
On November 9 the Trip Planning and Marketing workshop will be held at the Crawford Center in Emlenton, Venango County from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m.
The panel will be discussing ways to work with local recreational outfitters to create day trips in your town and along your trail. The panelist will then assist in an activity helping you create your own trips unique to your town.
Following the activity there will be a networking hour with light refreshments from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.
