Kate Foster

Mid-Atlantic Director for Trail Development at Rails To Trails Conservancy

As Mid-Atlantic director for trail development, Kate’s focus is on advancing TrailNation projects in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

Kate is an ordained Presbyterian minister. Prior to joining RTC, she founded and ran a mission and service-learning program that offers community engagement training for church leaders and places volunteers from all over the country with Baltimore-based community groups. She is particularly interested in equitable development and ensuring that historically excluded voices are centered in the process of designing and developing public spaces.

A native of North Carolina, Kate grew up riding bikes around her neighborhood and hiking and playing in the woods behind her house. Now a resident of Baltimore, Kate still enjoys being active, and in her spare time, you’ll probably find her on a trail somewhere.
