|FKC takes pride in planning, coordinating and implementing our Trail Care program. We are constantly inspired by our volunteer’s dedication to help build and maintain recreational trails and to protect Kananaskis Country’s natural environment.|
We won’t deny that it’s hard work stewarding trails, so celebrating our accomplishments is important! I am pleased to share the 2022 Trail Report highlighting our successful 2022 Trail Care season. We hosted 87 trail events with 249 volunteers contributing 2,733 hours towards the stewardship of Kananaskis Country.
The $100,000 partnership grant from the Government of Alberta provided a significant boost to the organization. It allowed us to enhance our operations with e-bikes, packable tools, chainsaw training, and to hire our first Trail Care Supervisor. As a result, we were more capable and efficient in undertaking trail assessments and maintenance across a broader region of parks and public lands. It also enabled us to expand our trail care program into Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park.
The support from the province, along with the enthusiasm and dedication from FKC’s volunteers, helped advance our mission of “Building a community of volunteers and partners to maintain the ecological integrity and recreational use of Kananaskis Country”.
To all our amazing volunteers, members and supporters, thank you for contributing to our success!
