The National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) program supports community-led natural resource conservation and outdoor recreation projects across the nation. Its national network of conservation and recreation planning professionals partners with community groups, nonprofits, tribes, and state and local governments to design trails and parks, conserve and improve access to rivers, protect special places, and create recreation opportunities.
Funding Partner: National Park Service
“Active Living By Design helped RTCA staff incorporate walkability and complete streets models into our community projects and helped us realize we needed to better engage health practitioners. I’ve also promoted the 5P model with many of my community trails and greenway projects.”
