On Friday, October 11, the Center for Rural Engagement at Indiana University partnered with the Eppley Institute for Parks and Public Lands to host the Indiana Trail Planning and Implementation Workshop. The workshop took place at the Sisters of St. Benedict: Monastery of Immaculate Conception in Ferdinand, Indiana, and included 20 participants from municipal government entities, non-profit organizations, and universities, predominantly from across the Indiana Uplands region. The workshop highlighted the benefits of trails, key considerations in developing a trail plan, the intricacies of gaining support for a trail, and strategies for funding a plan, including an overview of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Next Level Trails Grant. Mitch Barloga, the transportation planning manager and active transportation planner for the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission; Todd Blevins, a grant coordinator for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources; and Angie Pool the chief executive officer of the Cardinal Greenway all presented material and shared their expertise in the different aspects of the trail planning and implementation process. Attendees participated in group activities to learn from each other; asked questions of the speakers; and learned from Eppley Institute facilitators and speakers Steve Wolter, Layne Elliott, and Gina Depper.
