Tonight I attended DCN Trails which stands for Delta County Non-Motorized Trails Organization. Its a group of people who get together to protect and improve local trails. Doing so not only increases access to these trails for people who want to get out in nature but also encourages ecotourism of the area that lends itself to economic development.
While government can set policy and do a lot it is up to local businesses, groups, and people to invest in their own eco-tourism future. Businesses and citizens can get out and make a difference through financial or personal effort.
There are two events you may want to join. Both are between 9 am and 12 cleaning up and clearing trails. Bring shovels, limb cutters and rakes.
