The Administration’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2018 (October 2017 – September 2018) reveals what are nothing less than catastrophic cuts to programs that directly impact trails and the places where Americans enjoy the outdoors. The proposed budget for trails and the federal agencies that manage and maintain trails on federal lands fails to provide for even the most basic necessities to maintain and manage these critical recreation resources.
We are stronger when we stand together. If your organization is as shocked at the Administration’s proposed budget as most of us who support trails, outdoor recreation, and public lands, we ask that you add your organization’s name to our letter requesting funding to protect our trails and the lands around them.
