Trails for Illinois needs a searchable database of in-progress Illinois trail projects—defined as trails that are just ideas being pursued by a group or agency, through funded projects that are under construction. Step 1: Find them all. Requires e-mailing, follow up phone calls during workday hours and lots of Google spreadsheet work. Use your own phone and Internet device, we'll provide contacts, an e-mail address and phone number for your use. We suspect it's 45-50 hours of work, to wrap up by June 1, 2017. E-mail with "Trail Projects" in your subject line, and let us know how many hours you can give.
