On September 25th 2007, Governor Charlie Crist declared that October 2007 be observed as Florida Greenways and Trails Month.
Florida Greenways and Trails Month is designed to focus attention on Florida’s greenways and trails, involve Floridians in creating and using these great natural resources, and encourage partnerships that support the creation of a statewide system of greenways and trails.
To help celebrate this event, the Florida DEP's Office of Greenways and Trails has issued a poster depicting scenic Withlacoochee Bay Trail. This trail was designed by Genesis Group for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Office of Greenways and Trails.
Genesis provided conceptual and engineering plans including paving and drainage. Genesis also provided utility coordination services and performed extensive coordination with local governments, Tourist Development Councils, jurisdictional agencies, and local businesses.
