I have included links to the American Trails: Supporting Trails web page because it gives a good overview of the types of support that we have grown to expect from American Trails over the years. They are involved in alternative transportation funding, the history of bicycle/pedestrian issues, the federal surface transportation program, SAFETEA-LU, and many other important issues.
I hope you take the opportunity to view the American Trails website. If you are as impressed as I was, it would be awesome if you'd consider joining American Trails. If you do, you will receive a monthly newsletter and the satisfaction of knowing that you support an extremely worthwhile organization. I haven't regretted my membership; on the contrary, I'm quite proud of being an American Trails member.
