RTCA works collaboratively, by invitation, with partners on a wide variety of conservation and recreation projects.
RTCA provides a variety of assistance tailored to the partner’s needs, but does not provide direct grants.

Realizing Your Vision:
RTCA often acts as a catalyst to help assemble the necessary pieces to achieve on-the-ground conservation success, helping identify resources, navigate the planning process, convert ideas into actions. Program staff often provide technical assistance in conceptual planning, organizational development, and capacity building.
Tapping into a Network of Professionals:
The outside perspective RTCA offers includes experience from a database of hundreds of projects and thousands of partners from around the nation.
Succeeding through Partnership:
On average, our partners protect more than 950 miles of rivers, created over 1700 miles of trails, and conserved more than 53,000 acres of open space each year.
By working side-by-side in partnership with communities throughout the country, the National Park Service is building a nationwide system of parks, open spaces, rivers, and trails.
Path Council has been most fortunate to have had
the support of Rivers & Trails and their positive
energy and talents. We had hoped that your consultation
would steer us in the right direction and it certainly
