The Splatsin Community Centre will host a roundtable on Shuswap trail development Wednesday.

Groups make tracks to discuss Shuswap trails

A Shuswap trails roundtable will be held Nov. 30 at the Splatsin Community Centre.

An Enderby meeting will focus on relationships and extending trails.

A Shuswap trails roundtable will be held Wednesday, Nov. 30 at the Splatsin Community Centre from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

“This year’s trails roundtable includes addresses from Secwepemc leadership, updates on key projects from 2016, and lots of space for sub-regional discussion to guide priorities and support initiatives throughout the Shuswap for 2017 that continue to strengthen relationships and work together,” said Phil McIntyre-Paul, Shuswap Trail Alliance executive director.

It’s been a year since the signing between Secwepemc (Shuswap), regional, municipal, trail stewardship, environment, industry, business, and other sector leaders.

The next step is to strengthen relationships, share notes and review priorities for action.

“It’s a work in progress,” said McIntyre-Paul.

The STA administers the roundtable and working group with facilitation support from the Fraser Basin Council.

“These are early steps together along a very new path. Listening, patience, and generosity are key as we feel our way toward new relationships with each other and the land,” said McIntyre-Paul.

Highlights over 2016 have included a multi-use recreation management plan in the Owlhead/Cummings Lake alpine above Sicamous, development of a master mapping inventory, work toward a formal recreational plan for Mt. Ida and trail projects, both non-motorized and motorized.

“The purpose of the the Shuswap Trails strategy is to protect, enhance and recognize trails as an integral part of the Shuswap lifestyle, culture and economy,” said McIntyre-Paul.
