Volunteers make it happen
Join in the camaraderie, satisfaction and good health of trail building. Work alongside folks weaving it green in the Shuswap. Swinging a polaski, GSPing new trail lines, chainsawing downed trees, rebuilding washouts. Throughout the Shuswap, folks are working together to build and maintain a world-class network of trails.
2015 Trail Inventories - can you help? All it takes is picking a trail, going for a walk, taking notes, and sending your report in. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get an assignment. Click here for trail inventory forms.
