A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
A young engineer, looking to move away from the big cities on the east coast, began a journey across the United States with his bicycle and a resume. After visiting many communities between New England and Nebraska, this promising young man decided to stop in Lincoln. He visited the State Capitol and received a free map of the multi-use trails in Lancaster County and greater Nebraska. He was impressed with the network and connectivity of the trails across the state. At a job interview, the interviewer looked at his resume and seeing his previous address in New England asked, “What made you decide to move to Nebraska?” His answer was that one of the key factors was the trail network. He described how he decided this would be a perfect place to raise a family. He said the network of trails would provide a safe place to exercise, bike to work, ride and walk safely with children.
The Nebraska Trails Foundation (NTF) is an important partner in the acquisition, development, and promotion of multi-use recreational trails across Nebraska. NTF participates in the purchase and acquisition of abandoned railway lines to be used for multi-use trails. The trails are used by the public for transportation, recreation, and promotion of healthy lifestyles, all while preserving the environment.
