The American Horse Council (AHC), Back Country Horsemen of America (BCHA) and the Equine Land Conservation Resource (ELCR) have partnered to host a webinar on the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) – what it is, what it does for the equine industry, and how to apply for funding to support your local trails.
In August 2020, President Trump signed the GAOA into law, prioritizing deferred maintenance projects, including trails, and land conservation projects, addressing top horse industry priorities. In addition to providing input for the draft bill in February, the horse industry sent more than 1000 letters to Congress to urge passage of the bill.
Speakers for the webinar include leadership from AHC, BCHA and ELCR, and guest speakers Bethany Barron, PE, GAOA Program Manager with the National Park Service and Brenda Yankoviak, National Trails Program Manager with the National Forest Service.
To register for webinar – which will run from 1PM to 2:30PM EST on March 11 – send an email to email@example.com no later than March 8.
