We are proud to announce that ACE and the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) have received the American Trails Partnership Award (Level One) at The International Trails Symposium which was held in Portland, Oregon on May 19-22.
The American Trails Partnership Level One award is granted to a partnership which benefits agencies or services within the field of trail planning, design, or implementation. ACE and LTBMU of the US Forest Service have partnered on projects since 2009. Most recently ACE and LTBMU partnered worked closely together on the Eagle Falls Trail Reconstruction Project, a 2.5 mile sustainable multi-use trail. This project alone has provided more than 50 young adults with valuable trail-building and conservation experience.
The American Trails Awards Program aims to recognize the tremendous contributions of volunteers, professionals, and other leaders who are working for the betterment of trails both nationally and internationally and in both rural and urban settings.
A big thank you to our staff and corps members who worked on this project, and to our fellow award winners and partner Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit.
