Zili Xie, MES candidate, School of Environmental Studies presents: Assessment of Trail Characteristics and Invasive Species Prevalence of an Alternative Border Crossing route for the A2A Trail

"Alice” the moose traveled 570 km from Adirondacks National Park across the U.S. – Canada border to Algonquin Provincial Park during the period June 1998 – July 2000. Inspired the story, the Algonquin to Adirondacks Trail (A2A Trail) project was launched in 2014. The vision for the trail is to connect the two parks with existing hiking trails, trails converted from rails, main roads and back roads. A potential alternative US-Canada border-crossing route under consideration by A2A as part of the overall trail system is the K&P Trail along with the Cataraqui Trail. A research project was conducted in 2017 to assess trail characteristics and invasive species prevalence of the potential alternative border-crossing route of the A2A Trail. This seminar presents the findings from this study along with recommendations.
