2020 National Trails Day® Update

The health and safety of National Trails Day® hosts, volunteers, and participants is our top priority. Due to the CDC’s guidance regarding event gatherings and parks and recreational facilities and preventing the continued spread of the pandemic COVID-19, American Hiking Society will shift from promoting in-person events to a digital activation for National Trails Day® on June 6, 2020.

We are organizing a digital campaign to inspire individuals to unite for the protection of trails and access to public lands during this time of social-distancing.

National Trails Day® Promotional Toolkit

We’ve temporarily experienced life with limited access to trails and natural space and, now more than ever, realize how much we need them. American Hiking Society (AHS) will invite the public to celebrate National Trails Day® on June 6, 2020, in two ways:

1. Take the #NationalTrailsDay Pledge

The pledge is a simple way to take action to preserve trails and fight for equitable access to quality green space, even while social-distancing. We’ll provide easy actions people can take; you can create a custom call to action for your community too. Everyone who takes the pledge will be entered to win prize packages each week in May and a grand prize after NTD.

2. Share social media content:

Invite your community to share why access to trails and natural space is important to them. Encourage people to tag you, #NationalTrailsDay, and @AmericanHiking in their social media posts. Photos tagged with @AmericanHiking and #NationalTrailsDay will be entered into the NTD photo contest with a chance to win a gear prize package.

We hope you will join us and engage your community in the month leading up to NTD with these actions. We know your time is incredibly valuable, so we have put together sample content to help you promote National Trails Day® with your audience. Feel free to use the templates as-is or modify them to suit your needs.

The resources below will provide everything you need to promote NTD, trails, stewardship, and other programs. The public's interest in trails and the outdoors is elevated right now and NTD provides a key opportunity to showcase recreation opportunities, education, and other programs available when social-distancing restrictions are lifted.

Thanks again for joining us. We’re so grateful for your partnership.
