Shuswap Trail News – Sept 23

Please be advised that September thru December trails on crown lands are within hunting areas



With Mother Nature finally cooperating with some rain after this year’s extremely hot summer and horrific fire season  – we are now able to get those chainsaws back out onto the trails.  After this past weekend’s heavy winds the trails will be in much need of some chainsaw TLC.

STA is also hosting another Chainsaw Course this fall. If you are on the list from the spring you will be getting a call once the date is confirmed. If interested please call Lori at 250-833-6131
