    Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne designated 36 trails in 24 States as new National Recreation Trails, adding more than 800 miles of trails to the National Trails System.

    The announcement coincides with the 14th annual celebration of National Trails Day on Saturday, June 3, 2006. The theme for this year's event, "Experience your Outdoors", encourages people to use trails for exercise and exploration. More than 1,100 locally organized activities will take place throughout all 50 states including hikes, educational programs, bike rides, volunteer repair projects, festivals, paddle trips, and trail dedications. A complete schedule of activities is available at www.NationalTrailsDay.org.

    The National Recreation Trails Program is jointly administered by the National Park Service's Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program and the U.S. Forest Service in conjunction with a number of other Federal and nonprofit partners, notably American Trails, which hosts the National Recreation Trail website at www.americantrails.org/nationalrecreationtrails.

    The Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program (RTCA) is a community resource of the National Park Service. RTCA staff provides technical assistance to community groups and local, state, and federal government agencies so they can conserve rivers, preserve open space, and develop trails and greenways. More information is available online at www.nps.gov/ncrc/programs/rtca/.
