  2. Development of a professional certification framework for trail builders and curriculum program;

The working group has completed option papers for each of the above areas/projects and are seeking feedback from the following constituents.

  1. Professional trail builders;
  2. Clubs, private promoters and trail care alliances;
  3. State and territory land management agencies; and
