Get Involved

The importance of the Trail and its many historic and prehistoric sites are protected, interpreted and promoted for the public’s benefit through collaboration and partnering efforts by the Kaskaskia-Cahokia Trail Coalition (KCTC).  This all volunteer, informal coalition meets quarterly to advance and promote the Trail, educate visitors of the Trail's rich history, and promote tourism in the Southern Illinois region. 


Membership and support of the Kaskaskia-Cahokia Trail and the Coalition is appreciated and open to all interested individuals, organizations, businesses and agencies. Please consider becoming a member of the Kaskaskia-Cahokia Trail Coalition and joining us at one of our upcoming meetings!
