Recreational trail access planning session - Celista
Wed Sep 19, 2012 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Celista Community Hall
All are invited to attend. The agenda will include a short information presentation on the Regional Recreational Access and Trail planning process at 7 pm, followed by an opportunity to help update the regional recreational access routes and trails inventory, and highlight those areas that should be considered a priority for improved recreational management.
As well, individual submissions are being invited and can be submitted through the new trail report hotline at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send comments on the following questions: What are the recreational trails and routes that you consider a priority for improved access management? And why?
The Shuswap Recreational Access and Trail Management Planning process will include an inventory of existing and proposed recreational trails throughout the watershed, an environmental audit of those trail systems, First Nations reviews, community participation to establish management priorities, and the creation of a Shuswap Trails Protocol to give direction to future planning and management.
The process has been initiated by leadership from the Shuswap Lakes bands of the Secwepemc First Nation, the Shuswap Trail Alliance, Columbia Shuswap Regional District Parks, Shuswap Tourism, and the Provincial Recreational Sites and Trails Office.
Local organizations are invited to assist with the Recreational Access and Trail Management Plan. To get involved call 250-832-0102, and watch for further background information to come.
