Impact Statement Mission - The Nature Trails Society connects communities by formalizing the managed access of a world class outdoor recreation network of shared use trails for all ages, abilities, and experiences.
At NTS one of our primary goals is to repair and provide trails to provide access to nature for the community.
Another primary goal is to protect the environment we live in. So we work hard to lead by example and educate on environmentally sustainable trail building practices. By involving the community in the process we help create stewardship and pride in our natural areas.
Another important benefit of our work is the creation of green transportation infrastructure, providing the community options to travel with out the environmental impact of cement and petroleum.
