The Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA) has been nominated for the B.C. Parks Volunteer Group of the Year, for their trail stewardship efforts in Mt. Fernie Provincial Park.

Projects included environmental restoration of the Stove Trail, installation of the Stove Creek and Gorby Creek bridges, placement of directional trail signage throughout the park, and many trail surface improvement work parties.

Also celebrated is the partnership to have the new Lizard Creek Crossing bridge spanning from the Gorby parking lot to connect Lizard Lake Trail and Gorby Trail with Cedar Valley Road.

“Having been nominated for such a prestigious award, being recognized as a contributor to the enhancement of the park fabric, reinforces the value of a trail stewardship partnership with the Fernie Trails Alliance,” said Terry Nelson, FTA president. “With thousands of volunteer trail maintenance hours offered unselfishly by the dedicated members of the Fernie Trails Alliance, the long term sustainability of this community amenity will be enjoyed by many future generations to follow.”

“As president, and an active member of the Alliance, I can say that I am very proud to have the privilege of working with such a great group, and being acknowledged for our efforts only reinforces this pride.”

B.C. Parks Ranger Craig Gentle nominated the Fernie Trails Alliance for this prestigious acknowledgement of cooperative Trail Stewardship.
