Envision The Next Twenty Years

Connecting the St. Louis Region With Greenways

Thank you for your input!

Every five years, with your guidance, we update our strategic plan.

THANK YOU to the 7,000+ people who took the time to share their thoughts and guide this work. From survey takers to committee members, from partners to our Board of Directors, a vision like this takes all of us!

Check out the final plan:

Building on all of the strategic plans done to date, this plan asks 5 key questions as we look ahead to the next twenty years for our agency. With thousands of voices at the table, we consider where to build future greenways, what role conservation plays, how to ensure an excellent visitor experience and sustainable, long-term maintenance – and how to do it all with an eye toward equitable outcomes and measure success along the way.

What's Next? Big News!

One of the first things we’re moving forward (thanks to your feedback) is an Adopt-A-Greenway Program – you are invited to join us and our partners in caring for our region’s growing network of greenways! (130 miles and counting)

Starting in 2023, there will be opportunities for picking up trash, weeding or landscaping specific areas, removing invasive species or financially supporting the greenways care. 

We’re gauging interest right now as we design the program – this is not a commitment, just a chance for you to raise your hand and say, “I might want to do this, tell me more!” 

Thanks for those who signed up by December 31st to be the first to be in the know when we launch!

Yes, I am interested in the Adopt-A-Greenway Program:
