I'm Steve Buchtel, the new Executive Director of Trails for Illinois. From 2001 to summer 2011, we were the Illinois Trails Conservancy.
I'm embarking upon an adventure: building a statewide trails community that will integrate trails and trail experiences into Illinois work, play, life.
This tumblr blog is just the start of community building TforI—hey, we got a nickname!—will do. It'll be our journal as we figure out our website, our membership, and fundraising, and a place to post trail news, issues and thoughts.
