We welcome David and if you are associated with a rail trail in West Australia he can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of David’s main reasons for volunteering for this role is his desire to get more people outdoors connecting with natural landscapes. One important way to do this is make rail trails more accessible to the wider population, an important goal of Rail Trails Australia.
