You recently received an email from us inviting you to be part of the mission of the Pike National Historic Trail Association because we feel like you can provide a critical piece of grassroots support towards our #1 mission: the federal designation of the trail.
Did you know The National Park Service has been authorized by Congress to begin a feasibility study as a first step leading toward an official designation of the early 1800s Southwest exploration of the Zebulon Pike Expedition as a National Historic Trail.
The first steps towards organizing the study have taken place, so this is where you come in. We need your help next.
Economic Value Federal designation of the Pike National Historic Trail means tourists coming to your community spending money.
Educational Value Schools and universities in your community now have new resources from which to conduct historical research and have fun learning state history.
Recreational Value with biking, hiking and driving the trail, families and individuals have a whole new outlet for outdoor recreation and travel in your state.
What we need to bring this value to YOU:
- If the National Park Service contacts you, you will respond favorably.
- If scoping meeting is held in your area, you will work for positive attendance at the meeting.
- You will pass resolutions and send letters of support towards the federal designation of the trail when designation is considered by Congress in two or three years.
If this excites you, as much as it does us, please sign up below to be a point person in your area.
By filling out this form, you give us permission to contact you in the future with updates about the federal designation of the Pike National Trail in your area.
