New River Land Trust (NRLT) found Trail Websites via social media. They wanted to improve their website to make it easier to maintain and navigate as well as improving support for devices with small screens and touch interfaces like smartphones and tablets.
As with many of Trail Websites’ customers, NRLT had great content about their conservation work, properties, organization and programs. They just needed some help presenting it in an up-to-date way and a better way to make changes in the future.
The staff as NRLT put a great deal of thought and effort into evaluating their current content, documenting needed updates and gathering media to support the words with imagery, downloadable assets and graphics.
The end result looks great and presents NRLT to the community in a professional, organized way that helps people appreciate the mission and work. Visit the site to see what we created together!
We launched The Walden Woods Project’s new website today. Their prior site had a nice historical feel and a lot of useful content. It was showing its age though with a dependency on Flash for the home page, search tools that weren’t working and no friendliness for mobile devices.
The new site balances a more modern look with historic elements. It adds a sophisticated system for managing and presenting the many works in their collection of content by, and about, Henry David Thoreau. It works on mobile devices, has useful search facilities and much easier tools for donations and their online store.
The site features beautiful imagery from Walden Pond and the surrounding area and a video introduction by Don Henley, founder of The Eagles and The Walden Woods Project.
The Walden Woods Staff put many hours of work into updating, refining, organizing and creating content for this new site. Our part was creating the home and tools for experiencing their content. Visit the site to see what we created together!

Very few people had the skill to manage the site’s content which resulted in sometimes long delays to get new content posted or old content updated, depending on the primary webmaster’s schedule and workload.

Trail Websites and, our parent, Lewis Studios have designed and developed websites for multiple conservation trusts. Trail Data Manager™ was originally developed as part of a re-design for Littleton Conservation Trust.
