Through his tireless efforts, he has helped bring together a large majority of the regional trail stakeholders to sit down and discuss how this idea can become a reality. He has helped develop the Trail Alliance Business Plan, the Shuswap Trails Strategy, facilitate the creation of the Shuswap Trails Roundtable, and submited countless grant applications.

Lori Schneider Wood is also one of the "originals" - co-founding the Shuswap Trail Alliance with a broad circle of regional leadership in 2005. Lori's persuasive energy and ability to build lasting relationships has become a hallmark of the STA's mission to get people working together. She currently tag-teams with Phil to coordinate the day-to-day organization of the Shuswap Trail Alliance, as well as mobilize special projects like the Shuswap Trail Stewards Program.

Jacob (Sutra) Brett
Technical Trail Specialist
(250) 832-0102

Sutra is our lead technical advisor, designer, and trails specialist. He brings a particular sensitivity to designing for both the environmental and social needs of a trail, seeking to understand what motivates a person to walk, ride, or ski a trail as a core consideration in its design. 

Adrian Bostock
Project Operations Manager
(250) 832-0102

Adrian makes it happen on the ground. Where there's a plan and people willing to make it happen, he provides the glue that brings it all together and turns it into reality overseeing our field project teams, volunteer days, and stewardship support. It takes just the right mix of experience, skill, practicality, and good humour.
