Risa Shimoda co-coordinated and John Anderson attended the recent National Water Trails Forum held in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The purpose of the first National Water Trails Forum was to provide a venue for the (eighteen) National Water Trail partners to network and learn from one another about best management strategies and practices utilized in the nationally designated water trails.
This video highlights field trips to Ann Arbor, Port Huron, Belle Isle and the Outdoor Adventure Center in Detroit. Leaders and technical experts from Michigan’s two National Water Trails and several other progressive water trails organizations in Southeastern Michigan shared insights and their view of water trails opportunities and challenges. John is featured more than once, for his unique, insightful perspective.
