Three Rivers 2040 System Plan
Our vision is that every person can connect with nature every day.
The 2040 System Plan, adopted on July 9, 2020, presents our strategic priorities for the next 20 years, providing guidance for decision making, resource allocation and focus areas. We recognize our world is changing, and we need to change with it to protect our natural resources, remain relevant and best serve all of our community members.
This plan calls for establishing a system of offerings as diverse as the natural resources it is intended to protect and the people we are responsible to serve. It also recognizes that people are at different places on their journey connecting with nature, requiring different strategies to best support them. It calls for creating a culture of inclusivity, so everyone feels invited and welcome at Three Rivers.
How We Created the Plan
To better understand the community’s needs, we reached out to the general public, park visitors, trail users, partners, underrepresented community groups, volunteers and staff to learn how we could better help them connect to nature. Through online surveys, pop-up events and in-depth conversations, we collected thousands of ideas and insights that guided the development of this plan.
