Your membership dollars continue to directly support trail maintenance & development, advocacy & stewardship, and relationship building across our communities.
Thanks to your membership support we welcomed back our summer trail crew in 2022. The crew spent over 3000 hours on trail conducting repairs and ongoing maintenance and building a host of new features across the riding networks. We welcomed back events in a big way, with the return of the Summer Social Series, Trail Building Workshops and community trail days. We continued our journey alongside partner groups, community organizations and First Nations towards working together collectively in a good way. We believe the journey is just getting started and are already looking forward to 2023.
Check out some more of the highlights from 2022 that we accomplished with the ongoing and generous support of our membership. If you’re looking to find out more about specific trail upgrades or features built, browse through this year’s previous news updates.
