Students will investigate the history and different types of public lands in our area that contain recreational trails. The course will examine issues and implications for public use as well as discover how new opportunities for access are planned and developed. We will use a variety of readings, library and web-based research, and class discussions to study these topics. In addition, visiting professionals will contribute to our discussion by providing insights on managing, maintaining, and constructing these resources and introduce students to sustainable practices that ensure their longevity. The class will also have the opportunity to visit local lands and trails to evaluate these places first hand.

NOTE:  This course is taught 50% online.
