The 7th Annual Iowa Trails Summit brings together a diverse group of people - from great thinkers and experts at connecting people and ideas, to people that share a passion for outdoor recreation, our natural environment, and community development.

This award-winning event, recognized by the National Park Service’s Mid America Trails & Greenways for its unique approach, features a power-packed group of experts sharing their experiences, innovations and ideas for connecting people and enriching lives.

There will be special presentations on new trails attractions from all corners of Iowa, trails groups and trails supporters sharing information, and plenty of opportunities for networking, meeting new people, and sharing ideas.

Featured speakers include John Edward Terrell, A.B., A.M., Ph.D. (Harvard), Author & Regenstein Curator of Pacific Anthropology at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago and Dr. Richard Deming, medical director of Mercy Cancer Center in Des Moines, Iowa.

The registration deadline is June 7, 2016.
