KDWPT project helps businesses serve trail users

TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism is sponsoring a project to help communities and businesses attract and serve visitors to the Flint Hills Nature Trail and the Kansas River National Water Trail. Entrepreneurs and organizations can leverage the trails to grow businesses, create tourism opportunities, attract visitors and boost local economies. The focus of the project is helping businesses wanting to serve trail enthusiasts, but any business seeking assistance is encouraged to take advantage of this coaching opportunity.

For information, contact Dana Williams, Center for Rural Entrepreneurship, 402-323-7336 or email [email protected] no later than March 1, 2015. For the information presented at trail workshops held in October 2014, visit www.energizingentrepreneurs.org/library/entrepreneurial_communities_resources/e-communities-projects.

This project is supported in part through a Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) provided through USDA Rural Development in Kansas. Matching support is being provided by NetWork Kansas, the Kansas Small Business Development Center, and the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship.
