SMBA Adopt-a-Trail Program Launch!
- Participants will be asked to assess the condition and to perform general maintenance on a specific trail(s) on a weekly basis (or after significant events, ie. wind or rain) during the months of April through to November; (Depending on the number of volunteers we may double or triple up on trails)
- A trail inspection report will need to be completed once per year as per our partnership agreement with RSTBC (template inspection reports will be supplied)
- General Maintenance does not include any new trail construction, Maintenance includes: brushing, tree removal, water management, repairs to existing structures, etc
- If a volunteer would like to see new trail construction this must be brought forward to the SMBA Board for approval
- Participants are required to learn the Trail Standards as laid out by the SMBA and RSTBC and all volunteers interested in this program will be required to take an orientation session with the SMBA that will highlight these Trail Standards
- Participants will be required to take a 1-day Chainsaw Safety Course if they are going to be operating a chainsaw (this course will be paid and organized by the SMBA)
- The spring and summer workbees will still take place, the Adopt-a-Trail Program will be in addition to this
- If a significant event does take place that requires additional help, volunteers should let the SMBA know so we can recruit additional volunteers or request help from RSTBC
