Communications Guide

The Communications Guide has been the product of collaboration between the Division of Public Health, DelDOT, New Castle County, and other organizations with an interest in promoting trail use. It contains information and material to boost consistent messaging about the trail, including a simple trail logo, a schematic map, and social media hashtag. We encourage you to use the guide and materials in your messaging and hope you find it helpful. Download Communications Guide
