FY 2018 Budget

American Trails Leads Opposition To Administration's New Budget


American Trails has issued a call-to-action for all who are concerned with the Trump Administration's FY 2018 budget proposals.

American Trails, a national nonprofit working on behalf of all trail interests, has issued a call-to-action on the proposed budget for fiscal year 2018. The association's call-to-action is as follows:

The Trump Administration's proposed budget for fiscal year 2018 reveals what are nothing less than catastrophic cuts to programs that directly impact trails and the places where Americans hike and enjoy the outdoors. The proposed budget for trails and the federal agencies that manage and maintain trails on federal lands fails to provide for even the most basic necessities needed to maintain and manage these critical recreation resources.
We are stronger when we stand together.

A sign-on letter was carefully crafted in partnership with the American Hiking Society, Backcountry Horsemen of America, and the Partnership for the National Trails System, reflecting the level of concern among all trail user groups.

If your organization is as shocked at the Administration's proposed budget as most of us who support trails, outdoor recreation, and public lands, we ask that you add your organization's name to the sign-on letter which will be provided to the appropriators and other members of Congress.

If you are a partner organization, please sign on to this letter. If not, please share this with your favorite organizations including those who are not trails-specific but that advocate for things such as public health, business, and outdoor recreation.

Thank you for your efforts to ensure trails for everyone's future.
