Creative Crossings

showcase trail bridges Recent years have seen the con-

struction of some strikingly beautiful and innovative trail bridge designs. During the International Trails Symposium, trail project managers will have an opportunity to share the beauty of their trail crossings or bridges in the Creative Crossings Photo Gallery. American Trails is proud to show- case those bridges and other trail cross- ings through a photo gallery displayed in the Exhibit Hall at the Symposium, as well as in an online gallery on the American Trails website.

Silent auction offered

during the Symposium The silent auction is another regu-

lar feature of the Symposium. Bidding runs from May 17 to 6:00 p.m. May 19. This is an opportunity for business-

es and organizations to showcase prod- ucts, services, gift items, and publica- tions. Symposium attendees are avid outdoors enthusiasts who appreciate unique products and opportunities. We encourage you to donate items that rep- resent what your organization or com- pany has to offer to the trails world.
