Rails to Trails: Recreational Conservation

April 14, 2022

This is Audubon Society of Central Arkansas's monthly meeting. All are welcome to tune in. Following the presentation we will conduct our business. This month's presenter is Matt McNair, Division of Arkansas State Parks. His talk will focus on the potential conservation benefits of an extensive rails-to-trails system in Arkansas, with rail trails providing not only a space for human recreation, but serving as corridors for wildlife, birds, and pollinators.

Matt McNair is the Director of the Outdoor Recreation Grants Program (Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage, and Tourism). Along with providing grant assistance and project advice to municipalities and counties in Arkansas, he has served as the Arkansas State Trails Coordinator since 2020. He is a native of Bruno, Arkansas (Marion County), and currently lives in Little Rock, where his wife owns and operates Bella Vita Jewelry. When not serving the citizens of Arkansas in his official capacity, he enjoys gardening, hiking, canoeing, and pretty much anything else to be done in the Arkansas out-of-doors.
