Registration is now open for the South Mountain Partnership Trails Workshop: Building Strong Communities Connections. This one day workshop will take place at Shippensburg University on November 20, 2018. The cost is just $10, which includes breakfast, lunch, and reception! Less than 100 spots are available, so register early. The deadline is November 5 or until tickets sell out.
The workshop is open to all, especially people who are involved in designing, building, and maintaining trails and/or bike lanes.
