Trail Foundation welcomes new executive director

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

The nonprofit that advocates for the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake announced this week a change in its leadership. Heidi Cohn will take over as the Trail Foundation‘s new executive director starting in June. She comes from the Hill Country Conservancy, where she’s worked since 2014. The trail already has an economic impact of $8.8 million annually, and Cohn is expected to oversee a period of substantial growth in the next five years. She’ll also oversee the completion of ongoing projects like “the new Trail Bridge at Congress Avenue, Trail-wide ecological restoration work” and other improvements.
