Partnership Stories

The Rivers & Trails program works in partnership at the local, state, and
national level. Each of these partnerships is a unique and exciting story!

Choose one of the stories below to learn more or visit our partnerships page to see examples of our current partners.

A national partnership between RTCA and the American Society of Landscape Architects delivers pro bono planning and design assistance to selected community projects dealing with rivers and trails.

RTCA and Groundwork USA have teamed up to engage youth from diverse backgrounds with their local National Parks as part of the Groundwork Green Team program. Green Teams provides youth (ages 12-18) with the structure, knowledge, and tools to help revitalize their communities.
