Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #460 – Jan 15, 2017



A walkway system can be a showcase of how existing features in a landscape—an abandoned railroad right-of-way, utility corridors, city sidewalks, a canal towpath, a city dock—can be thoughtfully adapted to form a unified and useful outdoor space. It creates a public environment where people want to gather, explore, and learn. That promotes conservation at its most basic level—knowing our World.

—CRAIG EVANS, President, WalkWays Center in Washington, DC, 1989
