$900k grant for South Peace trail improvements

The South Peace is trying to keep displaced forestry workers employed in a related field, through a $900,000 trail maintenance grant.

Peace River South MLA Blair Lekstrom announced that the money will help maintain trails and improve recreation sites.

He also says 28 jobs will be created, which could be filled by forestry workers who lost their job due to the economic downturn.

Improvements include clearing blown down trees, felling hazard trees, planting trees, repairing trail marking and constructing foot bridges.

Paradise Valley Snowmobile Club, Moose ATV Club, and Bear Mountain Nordic Ski Association are working with Dunne-za Ventures LP to carry out trail maintenance work.

Work is underway in seven provincial parks and 81 campsites, including upgrading of 59 kilometres of trails. Cleanout at the upstream end of 44 culverts will be carried out, with badly damaged ones replaced. Signs, toilet facilities and picnic tables will be repaired or replaced.

The grant is funded by the Job Opportunities Program.
