Do you enjoy cross-country skiing or snowshoeing and want to give back to the local trails? Then join us at our annual trail cleanup at the Stake Lake trails!
We will be clearing rocks and debris and doing some pruning/pulling to help prepare a section of trail for the upcoming season.
The trail (“Quickdraw”) is 2km long and hilly, and is located about 2km from the parking lot. Be prepared for a couple of hours of gardening and a few kilometres of hiking. This can be a moderately strenuous activity, but the more volunteers we have the more we can get done! It will be a great way to get some fresh air and exercise on an autumn day.
What to bring:
- gardening gloves
- pruning shears or loppers (nothing too heavy required)
- layers of clothing appropriate for the conditions of the day
- bear spray, bug spray, sunscreen
- water and snacks
- a mountain bike to bike into where the trail starts (optional but recommended if you don't want to hike!)
If you are interested in taking part, please register by September 29. We will divide sections of the trail based on the number of volunteers. Meet at the Stake Lake parking lot, in front of the Overlander Ski Club cabin at 10am on Saturday, October 1.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
