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.

Spring & Fall Trail Inventories - can you help? All it takes is picking a trail, going for a walk, taking notes, and sending your report in. Contact to get an assignment. Click here for trail inventory forms.

Wondering how to help clean up those trails?  Click here for a few trail maintenance tips (with photos). Shuswap Trail maintenance standards are based on provincial standards (Rec Sites and Trails BC and BC Parks).

STA volunteers contribute more than their sweat equity. Ecological consultation, lobbying efforts, office work, and writing grant applications are examples of work done by volunteers of the Shuswap Trail Alliance.

Did you know - in 2014 over 513 volunteers participated
in 54 volunteer trail events
throughout the Shuswap,
and over 300 of those volunteers were young people.
