Shuswap Regional Trails Strategy &
Shuswap Trails Roundtable Update

Regional partners throughout the Shuswap have been working hard to develop the first ever multi-user (motorized and non-motorized) trail strategy for the region that includes appropriate acknowledgement of Secwepemc Nation territory, accountable protocols for planning and approvals, a focus on ecology and access management priorities, and a commitment to work together. After 1000s of hours of work by hundreds of leaders, the strategy is live. The result is a renewed commitment to work together on management priorities throughout the Shuswap and the creation of the Shuswap Trails Roundtable formally launched in December 2016. It's a milestone for the region setting a new direction for how we live, move, and relate with each other and the land.  

The Shuswap Trails Roundtable meets annually in late November/early December, and a Working Group of representative leadership meets quarterly. The most recent Shuswap Trails Roundtable met November 29th, 2017, at the Chase Community Hall. (See Summary Notes below) The next Shuswap Trails Roundtable will meet in late November/early December 2018 (date/location TBA). Scheduled Working Group meetings for 2018 are currrently set for: January 19 (CSRD Board Room, Salmon Arm), April 20 (location TBD), June 15 (location TBD), and October 19 (location TBD). Working Group sessions welcome representation, presentations, and updates from regional organizations and governments, but please note: Working Group meeting dates may change prior to the scheduled date. To confirm dates and submit agenda items please contact the Shuswap Trail Alliance at 250-832-0102 or email info@shuswaptrails.com.

Cumulative Effects Planning: Cumulative effects are defined as the changes, both benefits and liabilities, caused by our actions today in combination with other past and reasonably foreseeable human and natural disturbances. The Shuswap Regional Trails Strategy explores opportunities for Cumulative Effects Assessment to assist in trail planning throughout the region. A Cumulative Effects Subcommittee was struck to further assess the opportunities for utilizing CEA. Barry Wilson, Principal of CE Analytic Ltd., has worked with the subcommittee to advance the opportunity and scope the project.

Here is the Cumulatives Effects Project Scoping Report & Proposal and Presentation Slides for presentation to the November 30th, 2016 Shuswap Regional Trails Roundtable, along with additional background documentation of the planning discussions:

For additional background, check out the December 2015 Roundtable presentation slides on Cumulative Effects shared by Adams Lake Title and Rights Director, Dave Nordquist (here), and ALCES Landscape & Land Use Systems Ecologist, Barry Wilson (here); and Watch for more progress notes to come.

Shuswap Regional Trails Strategy Working Group: a representative leadership group meets quarterly throughout the year to implement the Shuswap Regional Trails Strategy at an operational level, with direction from the Roundtable, to assist trails groups with trail authorization, as a resource, and to help review, clarify, and provide input to trails authorization requests from local, first nations, and provincial governments (NOTE: the Roundtable and Working Group do not supersede established decision making authority, but act as a resource during pre-authorization consultation and planning.)

For more information on the Shuswap Regional Trails Strategy Working Group and to submit projects for pre-authorization input, please contact the Shuswap Trail Alliance at 250-832-0102 or email info@shuswaptrails.com.
