Volunteers participated in trail building. The goal of the day was to take the first steps in creating an accessible handcycling / recreational trail in Wascana Trails Park. The group removed tall grass, thatch and the top layer of organic matter to expose what will become the trail.
The work was hard and the result was great – approximately 130 meters of 1 to 1.5 meter wide trail was started that day. Over the next eight weeks a crew of trail builders will complete the work, but the connection that these volunteers made to the park and to this new and innovative trail system – the first of its kind in Canada, and possibly North America – was substantial.

Red Leaf participants came out to the beautiful city of Merritt, where we hosted a fantastic stewardship event on the Canada Day long weekend in Rotary Park.
Participants dug sod, weeded 6 garden beds, added organic compost, mulched around trees and tidied up the park’s flower beds. They also pruned older trees, planted 4 larger new trees, topped up the gravel in the playground and cleaned up 30 bags of litter.
Though the day was hot and the work strenuous everyone put their backs into it! All went home happy with tickets to the Merritt Mountain Fest and the sincere thanks of the City of Merritt, Molson Canadian and Evergreen.
