Our mission focuses on the following priorities: trails, active transportation, conservation, and placemaking. Our trail projects provide greater connectivity, safer walking routes, strengthened ecological corridors, and an increased sense of place for residents and trail users. Our extensive trail volunteer program provides an opportunity for individuals and corporate groups to engage in stewardship of local land and take ownership of their local trails and green spaces. We believe in complete streets, and are dedicated to making trails an important component of a a city accessible by foot, bicycle, and public transit for people of all backgrounds.
We cannot do what we do without the support of our members and the public. As a non-profit, we receive no state or city funding nor tax dollars to build and maintain the trails that thousands of people use every day. With over 1000 members and countless more volunteers throughout Maine supporting and participating in our work, we are able to transform Portland’s streets and the community, and offer a unique green, urban experience to visitors and locals alike.
