Last but not least in our series of new Board Member introductions, we’d like to welcome Ryan Blaisdell to our Board of Directors.
A resident of Cook County for nearly twenty years, Ryan has “witnessed firsthand the significant role the SHT serves in providing recreational opportunities to a wide variety of users who both live on or visit the North Shore.” Professionally, Ryan works in recreation and land management and understands the challenges of stewarding a trail that requires coordination with landowners and educating people on how to play responsibly on public lands.
Ryan is no stranger to the SHTA, he’s volunteered with the Association for many years, including the recent Kimball Creek Bridge installation. He brings along years of trail design, construction and maintenance experience that will help support SHTA’s renewal efforts and provide this unique perspective on the Board of Directors.
Thank you Ryan for stepping up into this new volunteer role and helping guide the Association as we work to renew the Trail and assure it is a sustainable recreation resource that will be there for the next generation to enjoy.
