A big hiker “thank you” to all those who came all the way to Washington, DC, to Hike the Hill from Feb 8-12, 2015! This annual event, a joint effort by American Hiking Society and the Partnership for the National Trails System, was a tremendous success.
Legislators in both the Senate and the House heard from their constituents who visited them here in their DC offices and told them about the importance of protecting and funding hiking trails and conserving natural landscapes.
Advocates educated their legislators about numerous pieces of pending legislation such as the reauthorization of the Land & Water Conservation Fund, the National forest System Trails Stewardship Act, Wildfire Disaster Funding Act, National Scenic Trails Parity Act, and more. Our advocates showed up well-informed, eager to work, and passionate about ensuring that the trails and places we all enjoy hiking today will still be there years from now.
Thanks to everyone who made the trip and worked so hard. It was a week of inspiration that will certainly carry us through to many successes this coming year.
