Gila River Birding and Wildlife Trail in Duncan

A one-time Zoom workshop is giving community members in Graham and Greenlee counties an opportunity to discuss their desired experiences and concerns related to local trails.

Anyone who uses local trails for hiking, camping, birding, hunting, biking, driving, horseback riding, or other activities may join by Zoom on Tuesday, October 19 from 3:30 p.m.-6 p.m. to discuss opportunities and provide input to improve the trail system in Graham and Greenlee counties.

The workshop is hosted by the Eastern Arizona Trail Collaborative, a group of partners working throughout eastern Arizona to create a plan for trails that spans across jurisdictions such as National Forests, Bureau of Land Management recreation areas, and county and municipal lands. It is the first in a series of community workshops open to all trail enthusiasts, local residents, government representatives, businesses, educators, organizations and more.

Participants will identify ideas for improvements on virtual maps. Since the workshop will be held virtually on Zoom, the first 30 minutes will be a tutorial on using Zoom and the interactive maps.

Those who are unable to join the Zoom workshop can share their ideas by making notes on large paper maps of the region. Following the virtual workshop, maps will be available at the following locations:

USFS Clifton Ranger District Office, 397240 AZ Route 75, Duncan 928-687-860
